Shadow Shot Sunday - Iris Shadows

Pin It

Longtime readers will know of my fascination (OK, obsession) with bearded iris.  Well, it hasn't abated and I was so please to get a little sun today, resulting in the beard casting shadows on the petals. 

Tracy hosts Shadow Shot Sunday from her blog in Australia.  Go on over and check out the shadow photos from around the world. You'll be glad you did.

Garden Notes:
Cloudy but warm-ish.  Mold is growing in the greenhouse. :(

Kind of a 'into the maw' type of macro. I love the touch of shadow and colors.
