[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Good Morning Everyone,

Apologies for my long absence but I have been on holiday and had a much needed rest.

Today, I am posting a shot of an iris bud which I found growing near water.

This beautiful, regal plant towers above the nearby vegetation.

The word 'iris' means rainbow in Greek. I have included an Internet link here, which gives details of the classical connections.

Many thanks for your interest.
Please feel free to offer feedback on any aspect of the photograph. :-)

Hello Beverley,
A fine shot from last summer. The composition with the natural framing Iris seed pod by the yellow petals of the flower nearest the camera is great and the BG provides good contrast.
Our summer so far has been cold, windy and wet with sunny spels providing lots of 'irises':))
Thanks and have a good weekend,

Hi Bev,

Hope you had a great holiday, I've still got 8 weeks to go before heading back to Jersey for a break but whos counting :)

Wonderful composition of this "Greek Rainbow" I'll have to follow the link for the connection, stunning colours, and really well framed, excellent POV.

t.f.s Rick :)

Hi Beverley.
Amazingly composed and decorated image of a fine iris bud. It is true art work. May be image is underexposed quite a little bit and colours are not as bright as at Nature (I think). However, very and very impressive job. My compliments and kind regards.

Ciao Bev, beautiful macro with good details and wonderful sharpness, great colors, very well done, ciao Silvio

Bonjour Bev,
Remarquable publication avec cette splendide macro bien composée dans un cadrage serré permettant d'apprécier la finesse des détails.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Hi Beverley,
a very detailed and sharp presentation of the flower bud. i like the hairy things around the stalk as it gives a good idea of the flower.
the colours contrasts so well and its is good graphic shot.
