[/caption] Not all flowers are created equal and the Dahlia seems to make a pretty strong argument. If you look closely, you can look directly into the center of the flower and see how each of the pedals grows. It almost looks like a giant onion but only much prettier and colorful. I took this shot while using my Sigma 50mm prime/macro lens and was about an inch from the flower. This shot was taken at the Swan Island Dahlia farm in Canby, Oregon.
