This is a Sweetheart Dahlia taken at the Berkshire Botanical Garden in late September. I’ve never seen this variety before and I was just enchanted by her beauty, and the turned-up petal that seems to say “Come hither.” I will certainly try to get some of these lovely dahlias for our garden next year.
Nikon D700 with Nikon 105mm macro lens.
I did some basic adjustments and finished with Studio 3 Collection’s Botanique from French Kiss Textures.
