Beautiful macro of this Iris! Stunning colours and the sharpness and details are excellent. Great lighting too! TFS
Cheers Tina :-)
Cette espèce est magnifique et très bien photographiée. Cette espèce ressemble à Iris spuria, grand iris bleu présent en Europe.
Hi again dear Jay ,
excellent details with vivid colours.
i like this colours.
great sharpness and composed.
I hope your happy looking Iris is giving you some hope that spring will arrive soon. I hear your getting another blast of winter.
Love the colour and composition here. You show off the nice qualities of the Iris well.
Glorious colors!! This flower is one of my favorites!
Nicely photoed, with stunning color variations and crisp details!!
Very impressive capture, I think the soft lighting has helped.....
Seems like you are ready and eager for the summer (or be that at least spring) to arrive. Calling it with this beautiful iris close-up is one way to spice up (heat) your chilled bones or as you put it to place "a wee more positive spin on "Spring" let's think very positive, and think Summer..."
A lovely colourful composition with extra sharp details. The green vegetation in the BG did well to enhance the flower and make it stand out in the shot. The exposure control was spot-on to ensure great colour saturation and lighting control with great contrasts showing in the darker areas as well as in the white areas.
Very well done and TFS.

A lovely flower in a pleasant close-up capture!
Good light and fine details, suitably narrow DOF makes the flower stand out well...
Well composed presentation, great colour palette!

fragile, touchy, poetically seen and well captured.
Lovely cool colours. The strictly vertical point of view shows all the wonderful irregularities of life within its symmetrical patterns of growth. Geometry with feeling.
Very nice shot, and a good text, too.
Has spring arrived in your place, in the end?
You could well take over from us that very strange April summer we are having since about four weeks now on the same geographical latitude. It is making most of us crazy, made a lot of premature blossoms fade away within days, has parched the soils and made farmers - and naturalists - pray for rain.
A nice flag for the "province" of Quebec, indeed, that I well never ever dare again to call a "state".

this is nice for me to see as it has been years since I last saw an Iris.These flowers grow wild in various places in my old hometown of Peterborough Ontario.You know I don't believe I have ever seen one of these as blue as yours looks so I'm surprised you didn't do any PP on it.Well done on this one and Tfs. Bob
very nice flower
beatiful colours and great foku
