Currently unavailable for purchase

Red and Yellow ~ Collerette Dahlia by 

A bit unusual looking, this flower, growing in a bed of dahlias, does not seem to be quite in the style of its neighbors. In coloring, it brings to mind a tropical parrot. Perhaps it’s not a dahlia at all.
Actually, it turns out that this IS a dahlia. It’s a Collerette Dahlia. ☺

Camera: Canon EOS Digital Rebel XT, Canon Zoom Lens EF-S 18-55mm.
Edited and shadow-boxed using Paint Shop Pro.
Location: Harkness State Park, Waterford, Connecticut (USA).
Season: fall, October 10th.

Having a digital camera is like having an unlimited bank account. Thousands and thousands of images, each with the power to bring back the sights, the sounds, the scents and the emotions of that one moment in time…bliss!!!

    Beautiful capture, Jade, There are so many different types of dahlias, it’s hard to believe they are all called dahlias. This one is so pretty.

  • Thank you so much, Tori! ☺♥
