    Action: changed name from "Helianthella californica" to "Helianthus sp. "

    Reviewer's comments:
         "Helianthella disk flowers are not dark, as shown. Also, Helianthella is relatively low-growing, and for the photographer to get a view such as shown, the camera would have had to have been at ground level pointing upwards. I've seen no examples from Brother Brousseau's collection of such innovation. Finally, it appears to be growing in a sunny area, which is not typical of Helianthella californica. On the other hand, it looks like a typical Helianthus annuus (cf this entry on CalPhotos), though I'm not sure of the species. It's interesting to note that there are no Brousseau images listed under H. annuus, even though this is a common species and he seemed to be pretty thorough about photographing whatever he noticed.
