First Kiss Dahlia

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 20 December 2016 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

A colorful dahlia spotted so late in the season, yet so vibrant and fresh. I believe this is either the "First Kiss" or "Tutti Frutti" variety. But if you know the correct variety, please share.

Spotted on Mackinac Island on October 3, 2016.

NIKON D7000 1/250 second F/8.0 ISO 160 70 mm

Beautiful dahlia. It's one of the flowers of my childhood. In the house of my paternal grandparents there were many dahlias...
The variety of this dahlia, I do not know. But I know it was very well portrayed.
