I noticed these Iris with a different color. They were past their best look, but I liked the color and decided to take a sharpened, detailed image that woudl show the blossom structure.

You have made this almost forensic, Don . . the fact she is past her best does nothing to dilute the wonder of it all.

Iris are always beautiful. I think of them as "northern orchids." A nice capture of this bloom, helping it to go out in style.

Lovely detail and an effectively dark background make this slightly past-its-prime bloom an attractive piece.
