Photographer's Note

This is the season for sunflowers to bloom all the way from France to Italy. Stella and I have an ongoing argument as to whether these "tournesol" (literally "turn about the sun") flowers really turn with the rays of the sun. I shot this in early morning and, indeed, the petals were facing the sun. When I drove back 5 or 6 hours later, they were still in the same position. If there is a botanist out there, would he/she be so kind to tell me..."Do they turn or not?!"
