A banner year for flocks. Sun, heat, lots of moisture all make for happy sun flowers .... not to be confused with sunflowers. These are next to the patio. I used to have just pink and white... but somewhere along the way nature took it's course and a merger occurred... above and below are Merger Flocks.
Alright.... this (above) isn't a flock... but it was pretty so it got photographed. I wanted to do a lot more images but I was starting to melt....

There is so much shade in my backyard that no flowers will grow except right by the patio where the sun still reaches most of the day. Tall-stalk flocks love it, are pretty much indestructible and bloom for almost a month. All kinds of flying critters visit.... I'll have some photos of them later. These were taken with the Nikon 105mm macro and 70-200mm zoom with Cannon macro filter.
