Flower Fest - N for Narrow-leaved Sunflower (Helianthus angustifolius)

Narrow-leaved Sunflowers are wildflowers native to the United States and belong to the family Asteraceae. The small plant has many stems branching out, the leaves narrow and dark green. They are often found growing wild in swamps, ditches and moist areas. Because of these reasons, they get the common names Narrow-leaved Sunflower and Swamp Sunflower.
The flowers are yellow, bright and appear in fall and early summer.

I found these flowers while hiking (am I beginning to sound like a broken record, yet?) last October.

This is my entry for N at Flower Fest.
