A Closer Look at the Iris

As a whole, I’m not particularly fond of irises. I do, however, find their parts:  the beard, the falls, the petals, and the crest  are quite stunning.

These were taken with my trusted P&S camera on one of my sick days.

I suppose flowers have different personalities as people do.

*Note–thanks much for all the well-wishes last week. Now Dapper G is sick . . . it’ll allow me time to sit and read a backlog of posts!

¡Muchas Gracias!

  1. I love photos 3 & 4; they look other-worldly. I hope you are seriously considering making art prints or submitting them for posters or calenders. I know of a place that accepts submissions and their desk calendars get picked for awards every year that I am aware of. If interested, let me know and I will give the particulars.

  2. Hmmm, this is one of my many favorites. I’m especially thrilled to see the all these shots. I love the colors and the light reflection. There are many that do not like them, they are considered just an old iris. But you need to check out some of the hybrid colors and you might have a change of heart. Granted they do not do well in the fragrance area but still I love em. Thanks for you time and efforts, as a matter of fact…..you painted one for me years ago and I still have it. (Somewhere)

  3. You did a fantastic job. I’ve never paid much attention to the beard even though I have irises in my garden… How enlightening! 🙂 Hope you’re feeling better.
