A Simple Pretty Flower for a Sunday – 16

Here’s the 16th  installment of “A Simple Pretty Flower for a Sunday.” If you’d like, you can view all the earlier Sunday flower images/posts on this page.

Today we have a dahlia flower. To me, these flowers are all about the petals, and so I shot this photo to emphasize that. This was taken back in October when I was shooting those dahlias.

Hope you have a great Sunday!

Shot with my 105mm macro lens at f/4.0.
