Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Iris Macro

PhotoGrrl Pictures

This Iris lives in our backyard.  We uprooted its life from a quiet, shady spot to a barren area full of sun – and it’s thriving dramatically.  The dark purple of its petals is deeper than any year before.

This isn’t technically a macro, as I don’t have a macro lens, but it’s about as close to flower as I can get with my camera, without a filter.  Still, I wanted to play along with the photo challenge…so here I am.
