Giant Sunflower 1

Giant Sunflower 1 (Genus : Helianthus, Species : annuus, Cultivar : 'Giant Single')

After sowing the Sunflower seeds directly onto the soil, i was happy to see 16 seedlings grow ; Though sadly 15 of those, were eaten by Slugs and Snails.
This Sunflower was the Survivor and although the Summer hasn't been kind to the garden plants (All needing more heat from the Sun), the Sunflower has bloomed ; This Photograph, was taken a few weeks ago, when the sun decided to shine, long enough to encourage the flower, to partly reveal itself.
Can you see the cheeky Frog-Hopper ?
