More Irises 2014

More irises from Hillsborough State Park and Brooker Creek Preserve. In the first several images, my goal was use of a wide-angle lens to place the flowers in the context of their environment.

The final close-up image was captured with a macro lens to highlight the details of an individual flower.

You can also see a definite color variation between the Hillsborough River irises and Brooker Creek irises.
