Moth Mullein (Verbascum blattaria).  Moth mullein grows two to four feet high and is found in old fields and roadsides.  It produces delicate yellow five-petalled flowers along the stalk.  It flowers July through September.  Its fuzzy stamens (male parts that bear the pollen) resemble moth antennae.
