[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This specimen of Iris hermona (a rare beautiful Iris of the Oncocyclus type) has an extra, fourth, pistil, giving it, at list at the base of the flower, four-fold symmetry, rather than the three-fold in a normal Iris. I've never seen such an iris before.

In the WS you can see the same iris from a different angle, looking quite normal...
