Bloomin' sunflowers (Helianthus sp L.)

(Vogel's sunflower head schemata courtesy Wikipedia)

This small crop of sunflower plants were self-seeding from the bird feeders. I am hoping they will entice the hitherto "flyover" goldfinches (Carduelis carduelis) and greenfinches (Carduelis chloris) into the garden, along with the usual suspects.
