A winter flowering iris unguicularis from my (limited) collection of flowers on black. I love the detailed pattern in the petals.

The colours here are really beautiful. There are some light areas in the background that could do with being removed but this is still a really nice flower shot.

Thanks both - I'm kicking myself Phil - I didn't look carefully enough at the background - I had such a fight to get the rubbish out of the way close to the petals that I've missed the (now) obvious - I'll blame it on old age and the lateness of the hour!

Regards, Mike

Glad to see someone else appreciates this plant. One of the best early flowering varieties of iris. Mine is in flower at moment.

Looks a little past it's best but sometimes this is a good time to photograph flowers as it brings out lots more detail.Good colour & light here & I like the angle of view.Yes the bg is a bit untidy but that can be fixed so very quickly.
Looks very good against the black.

Nature at her best. Iris's are very hard to beat for colour, and this has it to a 't'.

Regards, Terry.
