On fire: red dahlias in glorious colour

These red dahlias are from the same bunch I photographed for a recent black and white post. They have opened fully now, revealing the delicate yellow at the base of the petals. In early morning sunlight, they remind me of flames.

    • I had no idea these ones had yellow centres until the flowers opened fully. A nice surprise! I still want a macro lens, to get closer! A blogger in Germany recommended inexpensive close-up lenses that are just small rings that screw onto the lens’s thread, I may try that.
