Just can't get away from the huge dahlias that are in bloom now at Mill Creek Park -- and it won't be long till they're gone! Caught this brightly colored one yesterday with my macro lens. Happy Monday, everyone (if there is such a thing...)! ;-)

    Thanks for the uplift on this Monday morning Monnie. I can see this blown up to at least a 11X14 there is such depth here WTG

Another Dahlia another beauty.

The Alternative to Monday Morning is NOT GOOD .....
OR
If retired don't think about the days at all, works for me ........ If your really wild toss the wrist watch & cell phone in the Garbage Also, then your FREE FREE FREE........... No Watch, Never had a cell & don't want one.

Happy Shooting

Good Monday Morning, Monnie...I like starting my Mondays off with a smile brought on by lavish color on a beautiful floral and I found my Monday Smile in this one, for sure! Great exploding Fall color, beautiful detail and good OH light...MCP blooms brightly...and if anyone will enjoy it fully til the last bloom is gone, it'll be you! Beautiful work.
