Iris unguicularis

By oldgreyheron      
It's always a joy when the first of these delicate iris flowers suddenly appears at this time of year at the same time as the snowdrops and crocus. It truly feels as though Spring has arrived. This was taken yesterday - the flower had been open for three days.

Glorious, natural, dappled light and gentle shadows. It feels as though spring is at last arriving - I've been out looking for pictures for the town's Britain in Bloom portfolio and it's amazing the changes a week has made.

It is most definitely a joy to see, as presented by you, Mike. As always, I appreciate the character added by the shadows.

3 days and still looking this good? Now that's something. As is your shot, Mike. Fantastic focus and detail and the light is just lush.
