Niger Photo Gallery

Honeybee on a niger flower.

When it is warm and the sun is shinning,
it is difficult to take a  picture of niger
flowers without bees.

This picture was taken mid August in Oregon.

With lots of sun and space, a single plant
branches out and becomes a ball of flowers.
I have counted up to 400 flowers on a single
niger plant.
