Blue iris

By johnriley1uk  
We were at Dunham Massey earlier and found these gorgeous, tiny blue Iris. The aroma from them was magnificent. I used the Pentax MX-1 because compact cameras are superb for close up shots. The articulated screen does also make low level shots a little easier on the knees!

Very nicely shot.
I would crop just a little from the top to remove the out of focus clump. I'm sure some like to see that, so I'm just thinking of an alternative crop that makes the most of the line of flowers going across and down the image from top left to bottom right. Choice is good Smile
