Hi Bob. Where has that 40 years gone. I do like to see wild flower just out in the field with the grasses. you have a fine shot of the Blue Iris. well done TFS
You came home with a winner! I haven't seen an Iris in over ten years since leaving the east coast. I didn't know they grew wild. They are one of the first flowers I saw as a child (along with daffodils) and will always be a favorite of mine. The purple looks beautiful seen thru the tall grass. This is a scene I could go for right now.

A beautiful composition and a rich palette of fine colour provided by nature for our enjoyment Bob, glad this scene made you feel better my friend.
What luck - and they are fantastic - they almost glow on my screen. Great.
this is a simple and very attractive photo with great detail and colour.It is a shame that you are not 100% but then again I know what it is like as last summer,all summer my knee nagged me a lot.It is nice to think that there might still be places where human feet have yet to tred.40 years ago I was to young to know of Robert Kennedy and even now I don' but then again politicians never have held any interest for me but for those who miss Kennedy I can say only it is sad and tragic and such a pointless waste he got murdered as it is for all people who are victims of this kind of crime.Thanks for sharing this rather pretty photo of life anew for yet another year. Bob
Such a beautiful image. The rich contrasting colours just seem to come alive in this photo. You seem to have a real knack for composing fantastic images Bob!
Im glad you decided to take the back road home this time. Hope your feeling better tomorrow!

A lovely tribute photo.
The colours are rich and well saturated.
The focus is sharp.
Very good pov and dof.
Your miracle flowers Bob. What a blessing for you and how exciting to see these treasures.
They are placed so prettily here, peeping out through the long grasses. Good one my friend

Hi Bob,i can't believe that in your country this beauties live wild! In my country there are only the yellow iris living wild.My compliments for the excellent quality of colors,excellent words as your style,thanks for share,Luciano
Luck favors the plucky and the brave, Bob, and you were both in taking this picture without realizing what you were aiming your camera at, ha,ha,ha!
This is a beautiful cluster of lovely Wild Irises (would that plural be valid?).
Great colors here, Bob, and a sharp capture.
Hope the pain is not bothering you anymore.
I'm glad you found these beautiful Irises and that they made your pain disappear (at least for the moment)! It's a beautiful capture and how nice to find these in the wild.
Let's hope the Democrats make it to the end. We've followed the campaign carefully on Sw. TV. I can't help thinking though that an awful lot of time (and money!!)goes into this campaigning instead of the parties engaging in other vital matters!!
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

Occasionally I feel the flowers and the nature are related like husband and wife. One survives on other. Or may be like a mother and child. In Indian philosophy the relation between a husband and wife defined by narrating four relations between two true lovers. Paternally – Maternally – Friendly and Physically. The photograph, your note depicted the relations again.

I would love to walk through a field with flowers as beautiful as these ones on your photograph. I think I'll forget about the time, I'll stop at each one and admire the beauty, and if they have a fragrance I'll like to smell them. I am also sure that in between I'll find different kinds of insects or butterflies and all other lovely kinds of grasses, weeds and hidden treasures of interest. This is really a beautiful display of nature. Thanks for sharing.
