2017—Botanical Sunburst

I’ve been thinking about the upcoming solar eclipse.  Where I live, the eclipse will be about 79% of total, but in Oregon the path of totality is about 50 miles from where my brother lives.  When I was in Oregon a week ago, I took this photograph of a cone flower in front of my brother’s house and it reminds me of a caricature of the sun, sort of a botanical depiction of the eclipse.  The petals represent the corona and the center, the moon blocking out the sun.
