Beautiful! The colors are so bright in this shot! Is this iris growing in your yard? It looks amazing!

I agree with Lara - the colours stand out - I bet it looks great in situ.

Thanks! Yes, these grow in the garden out front. They are lovely while blooming, but I'm afraid they don't fade well. The light filtering through the maple tree above brought the colors out nicely.

I never realized this before, but irises do kind of look like orchids -- it's that caterpillar-like thing on each petal. If you click on the picture (and then wait a second until the enlarge icon shows up in the lower right of the new picture, and click on it again), you can see it more clearly.
