This summer, Public Gardens in Halifax, Nova Scotia, had a gorgeous dahlia exhibit.
With my Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 USM macro lens (buy on Amazon.com), I tested it out on those dahlias and other flowers in August. The lens is magnificent, as you can see in the gallery below.
There were displays to show the different types of dahlias in the exhibit, which I displayed first in the gallery below. There were peony, pompom, miniature ball, cactus, semi-cactus, incurved cactus, formal decorative, informal decorative, stellar and collarette dahlias.
See if you can identify the various types of dahlias. Aside from a few types like the stunning collarette dahlia that is my favourite, it’s not as easy as you think!
