The dahlias are just beginning to bloom in the gardens of Mill Creek Park in Youngstown, Ohio. This one was hanging its beautiful head in the near 90-degree heat. Taken with a Canon EF100 f/2.8 macro lens (ISO-400, f/7.1, 1/500).

I’m a semi-retired newspaper editor/writer who loves photography, especially flower macros, lighthouses, old mills and covered bridges.

    Wow! Just spectacular!

  • So glad you like this one, Dot – I always value your opinion! Went back for a little while today just to get out, but even though it’s a cloudy day, the heat drove us back to the air-conditioned car in fairly short order.

    Gorgeous capture Monnie … I couldn’t take your heat … mid-70s is high enough for me .. stay cool!

  • Mid-70s is ideal for me, too – anything over 80 and I turn into a shrew! ;-) Thanks!
