Crimson Zinnia by KeldBach Crimson Zinnia by KeldBach
A 'portrait' of one of my assorted summer flowers this year. I think it's a Zinnia elegans but can't be too sure since they come in many different shapes and colours. See also:

Nope. The dark background was provided by a hedge lying in the shade.

Blurred with that large aperture again. 5.6? I gotta learn how to use the manual settings on my Canon. I'm just lazy, my cell phones so easy and for being a phone does a great job. But I'll never get the thrill I feel when looking at ur photos by continuing to use my phone.

Yes, I have pics of zinnias and dahlias but get them mixed up, they can look so similar.  Another mouthwatering shot, as usual.

Thanks very much :)

By the way, you don't need a macro lens to take good flower shots. Maybe get some inspiration from this article: Creative Flower Photography w/o Macro Equipment.
