ZIZO #28: Sea Anemone?

 
Helena hosts a weekly photography meme where bloggers post a pair of photographs - one zoomed in and one zoomed out. It's a wonderful way to capture the world. I took this close-up recently. And it reminds me of a sea anemone. But it isn't.
It's a fantastic dahlia, from the Dahlia Garden in Golden Gate Park.
And I wasn't the only one who decided to photograph these beautiful blossoms!
Do you ever run into other photographers stalking your ZIZO's? And did I fool you today?

Yes, it definitely looked like a sea anemone. The power of suggestion is a fascinating thing!

Absolutely gorgeous, and I often find fellow photographers in the same spot where I'm taking photos.

Didn't fool me - but it is a GORGEOUS shot! When I was shooting the water lilies at Longwood Gardens last year, I could barely get near the flowers. There was easily a dozen photographers in that small exhibit!

The Feedly shot misled me but I knew once I was on your blog, they are beautiful.

It's beautiful & does resemble a sea anemone!

Clever suggestive post title and beautiful blooms. I knew it wasn't underwater though so I was puzzled ...
I rarely see other photographers when I'm out and about :-(

I knew it wasn't an anemone or underwater but wasn't certain of the type of flower until the fuller shot.

Was intrigued to learn that dahlias were first grown as a food crop. And that in Texas dahlias are pronounced differently than in the UK ;)

It really does look like a sea anemone. Two great looking zizos. I've really fallen off the zizo wagon the past couple of months and need to get back on it.
