Picture Perfect

Of course, when you find the perfect sunflower field, you will want to take some pics! Sunset is a particularly magical time to get photos of sunflowers. 

However, be respectful of the fact that these beauties are the livelihood of the farmers that grow them. Don’t enter fields or cross fence lines for the sake of the perfect pic. As well as causing potential damage, trespassing can cause a bio-hazard risk to crops. Also, be aware that there may be snakes or other creepy crawlies hiding in the fields so tread with care!
