and...a lovely one, Tom.
Tom Wilson: A very common variety.
A lovely shot Tom, I came across many of these whilst out last week, and today.
Tom Wilson: It's obviously flowering time on both sides of the pond, Frank.
Beautiful macro!!
It that a Bearded Iris? I have those in my garden! I have had the bulbs since 1991, and have moved them from the Phoenix area, to the Mesa near the Grand Canyon, and now to Flagstaff!
Tom Wilson: Yes, I think it is the most common variety - one sees them all over. I've tried more exotic varieties, but they don't seem to survive as well.

So ornate, almost orchid-like in close up
Tom Wilson: One sees things differently in close-up.
The iris is such a magnificent flower, Tom, isn't it! Thanks for the closeup.
Tom Wilson: Lovely, isn't it?

It’s a fantasy world in their Tom.
Tom Wilson: It is, indeed!
You really see just what fantastic structures these flowers have when you get up close
Tom Wilson: Amazing, aren't they?

What a hairy tongue for this beautiful flower smile
Tom Wilson: That's its beard, I think, Louis - hence, bearded Iris
The inner parts of flowers are their most interesting aspect.
Tom Wilson: This is certainly an example of that!
One of the most beautiful species of flower.
Tom Wilson: Yes, I love 'em.
Spectacular,'s like a creatures mouth! smile
Tom Wilson: Amazing, isn't it!?
