Here are few macros I’ve made of the Dahlias growing in my backyard. This one is a Pom-pom Dahlia.

This one I used my 20mm Kenko extension tube, and a Hoya Soft Filter on my Macro lens

This yellow Dahlia I photographed using my AF-S 50mm f1.8g lens

…and one more Pom-pom Dahlia. I’ve had a lot of fun photographing these this Spring/Summer. Unfortunately, the blossoms are getting smaller, and smaller on this plant.

I think I’m ready to try growing Plate size Dahlias and Peony’s next year.
