Location? Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Next to mountain stream, though a little higher than stream bed, along edge of roadway. She sure is a beauty, I know that. Minature Iris, I believe or maybe this is called Wild Iris? I realize there is nothing here for you to get a bearing on it's size. You'll have to take my word that it is 50% size of standard iris's. It was the only flower blooming, though a few more will happen if they didn't get froze out this week... Ok, I am going to add a note, that I know this is not the best perspective on this flower. I was just so amazed at finding this in the wild, I wanted to capture it's color and beauty expanded. The environment didn't setup to well for a great shot, and the time of day was all wrong as well...But I plan to go back this weekend and see if I can find more.
