Early morning is the best time in the fuchsia garden at my local botanical garden, when blooms are new and the sprinkler/misting system has run quite recently. This variety is “Party Frock,” one of my favorite fuchsia names and a flower of exquisite color contrasts. (Olympus E-5 & Zuiko 50mm macro, f/8, 1/100 sec., ISO 640, open shade, handheld)
