[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
You wouldn't believe it, but I did not use flash this time, its just nice morning sun. Homeria comptonii is a South African cormous plant. It belongs to the Iris plant family. Recently the Genus Homeria is included within the Genus Moraea. Althpough the Homerias have open round flowers and the Moraeas (in the strict sense) have iris-like flowers. This is the reason I prefer to use the older nomenclature.

Fantastic light on the beautiful flowers. The colors are entransing.

It strange to me how frequently they change the elements of the classes in the plant world. It's really bewildering for amateurs like me :))
