Sunflower in the Setting Prairie Sun

We walked down from Seventy Mile Butte in Grasslands National Park just before dusk, and saw this Sunflower beside the path, backlit by the setting sun.

I sometimes guess at the names of Prairie Sunflowers — there are so many! But I think this is the Common Annual Sunflower. By any name, it was a lovely flash of life on a dark, gravelly part of the trail.
