[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Here's a lovely "catch" from this morning's outing: a nice specimen of this unique iris (compare to previous posting: www.treknature.com/viewphotos.php?l=3&p=147390). The flower is about 9 cm high, a rather large specimen.

The area is used for goat grazing, as the local flora has developed in equilibrium with moderate grazing. Note the leaves had been clipped before the flower developed.

Hi Ishi,
Beautiful iris and excellent control over exposure, perfect details and natural colours and frame.
I've found a few white irises very similar if not equal to yours and I thought it was an albinus one belonging to the really abundant blue Iris planifolia.
TFS and best regards,
José M.
