Missouri in Drought Part 1

I've been going to post this for three weeks, but I can't seem to find the time to go back through my CD's of photos from April and May to find the ones I wanted to post, so I'm posting these few from the last two weeks as part 1 and hopefully I can find time to post the others eventually. The first one is a small pond that has completely gone dry. The middle two are of the lake below the house. That all used to be under water. The last one is of a tree along the bank of the lake. Those roots should be under water. Instead they are exposed and about 5 feet from the water. I don't know how the tree is surviving!

Name That Flower!

Name that flower is back! I went ahead and listed this card in my shop today, but I would really like to know what kind of flowers these are. It's not a sunflower, I've never seen anything with leaves like it. They are about 5 feet tall and grow wild in the fields of MO.
The first person to correctly identify it will receive a free 4 x 6 print of the photo. So name that flower!
