[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This iris is found in a few locations of Northern Golan and Mt. Hermon (Ori Fragman-Sapir has pointed put that despite its name, this species does not appear on Mt. Hermon itself...); it is quite rare and endangered. The flower is quite big, about 10 cm in diameter. Like I. lortetii , which I showed yesterday, it belongs to the Oncocyclus section of the Iridaceae

Hello Ishi

Another beautiful iris.
Wonderful detail,colours and sharpness.It looks so delicate and fragile for quite a big plant.

Bonjour Ishi
C'est une très belle photo d'une espèce courante mais attachante : beau contrast entre le sujet et l'arrière plan, parfait rendu des détails et spectaculaire rendu des couleurs rose et jaune.
Amicalement et au revoir...JP

Gran profundidad de campo, buena luz y fidelidad en los colores. Por otro lado, una planta preciosa que yo nunca había visto.
Saludos Ishi: Josep Ignasi.

Nice iris portrait, the irises on Mt Hermon are not Iris hermona. Dinsmore described Iris hermona south of Kuneitra, which is where we know Iriws hermona today ni the Golan Heights. In Mt Hermon itself you can find Iris bismarckiana and Iris westii. Ori

Hi Ishi

Spectacular flower. Great sharpness and beautiful colour. Good composition and OOF background.


Wonderful iris.
I like the sharp details and the lovely colors.

Bonjour Ishi,
Très bonne maitrise de la lumière, et de la profondeur de champ, valorisant bien le sujet.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
