A Wild Iris
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Tobermory Canada, home of two great national parks, spectacular scenery, clean clear fresh water located at the tip of the Bruce Peninsula approximately 3.5 hours north west of Toronto. |
I took a leisurely hike in Bruce Peninsula National Park where there are many trails to see the flowers native to the area. This is a Wild Iris taken around 6 in the morning using a Macro lens.
Wild Iris - Iris versicolor
Wild irises are perennials that grow in swamps, wet meadows and moist woods throughout North America. Like their cultivated relatives, they are easily identified by their flat, sword-shaped leaves and distinctive flowers. Each blossom consists of three erect petals and three larger outer petal-like sepals, usually the same color as the petals, which ordinarily curve downward from the base of the flower and are marked with crests of a contrasting color. The striking flowers bloom from spring through early summer in a very wide range of colors, often in combinations--and are aptly named after the Greek goddess of the rainbow.
