[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Iris lortetii is one of our most beautiful and rarest irises, blooming in late March to early April in the Galilee, in the northern part of Israel. Sadly, only a few isolated populations of this lovely iris have survived. This particular specimen is rather large, with the flower alone about 12 cm in height.

Hello Ishi,
It must be impressive to see this big iris in the wild. Fantastic colours. Maybe a blurred background would deserve more this beauty (with f/8 for example, in place of f/18). Just an idea... Cheers,
