A dazzling dahlia

On a recent day off from work, I was at my
"backyard" botanic garden at 8 a.m.—and had the place
 almost entirely to myself (which was my plan).
Took my time playing around with the hard-to-focus
(but lots of fun) macro lens that fits on my iPhone.
This dahlia was so ready for its close-up!
