sunflowers on a Saturday afternoon

Is there a more cheerier flower than a sunflower?  I don’t think so.

I took these pictures a few weeks ago on a very hot Saturday afternoon from a gravel road between two fields near Pangman, Saskatchewan (south of Regina).  The wind was blowing, so I had to sometimes hold the stems with one hand, while taking the picture with the other for some of the pictures.  Some were a bit blurry so I used the artistic effect in iPhoto to compensate for the flaws.
