First Iris to bloom in our Garden

Discussion in 'Macro, Flowers, Insects, and Greenery' started by misupix, May 20, 2007.

  1. Today the first ever Iris blossom decided to unfold in our Garden. What a pretty sight.

    NIKON D200    ---    190mm    f/8.0    1/640s    ISO 400

    That's such a nice reward, after "working" the whole Saturday in the Garden and catching a bad Sunburn on my neck......I guess I'm a real redneck now? :Crunk:

    Thanks for looking. C&C appreciated!​

    If I remember right, I went to school with an Iris McGee that was pretty homely! :wink:
  6. That is one beautiful flower & image, Michael.
  7. My Iris are coming out as well. They are my favorite flowers. This photo is stunning. What lens and settings did you use?

  9. What a splendour!

    Our first Iris's bloomed more than a month ago, but it was a dwarfish species. The big ones (white) do not even show flower buds yet.
