Hi Ori,
Smart Iris. Must be great to see one at 2020 m and even more without another flower around.
Best regards, José M.

Curioso realmente este iris y elegante. En ténica no encuentro que sea una foto especial jajaja pero la belleza de la planta hace que sea una fotografía muy interesante, y para eso hay que estar allí ( 2.020 m. ) para plasmarlas. Buen documento. Saludos Ori.

Hello Ori,
Beautiful and very interesting post from you today!! I'm a member of Garden Society that tours the world looking at rare plants and I've seen this before in their magazine. It is really remarkable and very beautiful! Excellent capture, very sharp and lovely colours. Nice composition too!
Many thanks and best wishes, Ulla

Hi Ori,
Excellent composition for this rare Iris species. Flower on the top looks like a large open mouth. Details and focus very well. Thanks for sharing
Well done

Now this is so interesting to view.
There appears to be a mouth like resemblance on the upper part. Nice focus and detail.

Beajours Ori,
Incroyable et fascinante, comme la plupart des espèces d'iris que tu présentes.

It is a spectacular iris. Incredible lines and spots. Very nice photo and very interesting species.

Hi Ori,
Beautiful iris. Such an unusual form and gorgeous patterns. Lovely colours and immaculate sharpness. It must be a wonderful sight to behold at that altitude. Excellent POV to present it here and a precise DOF. It has to be RARE. Very nicely composed. Kudos.

interesting flower. We don't have many iri here.
