A Sunflower Constelation

Nobody told our sunflower it is supposed to follow the sun with its main flower, and then stop facing east. It did not follow the sun at all and chose to face its main flower north the whole time instead.

And now it has developed a whole head of little suns facing in all possible directions.

There will be some pictures of its inhabitants in due course. That is, if I do not forget. There is a very interesting inhabitant in this picture too.

    Wait, how does that main flower still appear to have all its seeds in place? Are there no greenfinches over there?

    It’s like the photo doesn’t make sense. At first I thought it was time-lapse photography.

    My literature says that wild sunflowers found in the US midwest tend to bushy, with many small heads rather than one large head. Maybe Caine and some commenters have seen them? I suppose they look much like the close relative girasole artichoke.
