I'm unable to identify this https://picasaweb.google.com/1165256294 ... JDtxYKNuAE
It was founded near a sunflower field but hardly not ressembling at all.
Cheers.

probably in the sunflower family, but maybe not too closely related to the big ones. probably a wild one of some sort.

looks like maybe related to the daisy or aster or a wild sunflower.

Just like I said never heard about wild sunflower, even a search with Google found nothing for that. Maybe I'm wrong.

There are lots of wildflowers in the aster family, that includes sunflowers and daisies, that are similar yellow daisy like flowers.

Definetly its Heliopsis Helianthoides 'Summer Sun' !
Many thanks, I even didn't know about that.

Centaurea what ?

Yet another one which is hard to identify for me because the multitude of almost identical subspecies. It's obvious CENTAUREA, but can't tell what kind: Jaccea, Biebirsteinii, nigra ? :?: :?
Even with a flower determinator I did not manage to pinpoint it.
