48 hour dahlia bloom progression
Lens: SMC Takumar 50mm Macro Camera: k30 Photo Location: Montgomery, Alabama ISO: 200 
Posted By: Knock, 07-11-2016, 08:27 PM

I had my eye (and camera) on a dahlia bloom in my backyard over the weekend. If I did my math right, the pictures capture roughly 48 hours of bloom progression. 23 hours lapsed between the first and second picture, 25 hours lapsed between the second and third.

Fascinating! I think all 3 stages have their charm.

Wonderful photos. That Takumar 50mm does a great job with that camera.

Thanks for sharing.
