i tried every way i knew how to show how big these sunflower seed heads were, without actually resorting to sticking my hand into the photo. for what it’s worth, those stems are the thickness of tennis racket grips, the thickness of pool cues, the thickness of grain scoop handles. the heads are smaller than garbage can lids and manholes, but larger than dinner plates, frisbees, and record turntables. they are pretty close to the diameter and circumference of the steering wheel of my toyota prius. there. that’s the best i can do, without sticking my hand into the shot.
