Wither Art Thou Iris

IMG_2118-Edit edited

Yet more of the withered irises in my garden, featured previously here and here. These three posts are all shot within a day or two of each other, and today’s were all shot right after I took the picture of Cat No.2 in yesterday’s post. These are mostly with a different lens at a higher magnification, or at least in much tighter. I think the extra magnification gives these a very different feel.

There are still crinkly brown bits out there that more fastidious gardeners would have removed by now, but I am back at work and catching the morning light seems harder to manage.

    • Hi Ken – you are of course leaving those brown leaves in case the light hits them right and you can get a shot. A fastidious photographer instead! Glad you like these shots.
