As their name suggests, sunflowers love the sun. In fact, they need it so badly that they actually turn to face it when they’re young.
It’s only fitting, then, that sunflowers look their finest on bright, sunny days. Their yellow petals absorb and reflect light beautifully and provide a natural, stunning background to any photos, whether you’re taking them with a pro-grade DSLR or a mid-range smartphone.
The effect is multiplied further when you look at a field packed with thousands of them. Did you know that a sunflower itself isn’t just one flower, but thousands of little ones? That’s why the big brown bit at their centre is so fuzzy – it’s the feeling of many little flowers on your fingers!
