Hi Ori,

Amazing flower, reminds me of some of the hybrid forms that are seen in the garden varieties. Nice shot too, shows the foliage as well as the flowers.

Another marvellous picture from one of your royal Iris. It is a shame even if they are protected species,endangered of extinction is not enough to respect their ihabits.

It is very familiar situation for a spanish person, here we have the same problem (I think most of mediterranean ones) Authorities protect, and then help to avoid legal obstacles to the speculators.
