This hardy iris does not have a name---we call it Early Purple---always the first to bloom, reliable and a pleasure to find some foggy morning!

Beautifully detailed image, Jenn, the colours so well recorded too and standing out beautifully against the green b/g: and absolutely no noise despite ISO 640.......there's no doubt Nikon have delivered sensors that cope with higher ISOs so effectively.
