Utata Thursday Walk 697

Last week I wrote about goldenrods. This week I wish to talk about another member of the Compositae family, that group of flowers that share a common trait, composite flowering heads. What exemplar illustrates this grouping in the most graphic way? Why the common sunflower of course. The crazy thing is that this family is so large, with over 33,000 know species. Other common members are asters, daisies, and chrysanthemums. What looks like a large single flower is actually a few to hundreds of individual flowers in various developmental stages. The composition is greater than the sum of its parts. Much like our Utata Thursday Walks. Each member of Utata can contribute to the overall look and feel of each individual Thursday. So lets composite the day by tagging our walk photos with the tag utata:project=tw697. You can even illustrate this composite with one small image in this thread.
