Iris Frenzy

Deb's garden contains some wonderful Irises that showed their full colors and textures during the Spring just passed.  With my renewed interest in photography, I found I spent much time enjoying the flow of their colors and textures.  We think our Irises are mostly of the Bearded and Siberian variety, though we might have some Japanese Irises too.  Per the Internet, source of all knowledge, Siberian and Japanese Irises can sometimes be confusing to tell apart.  Well, at least one other person thought so...

All photos are shot handheld, many with my 60mm macro.
These are definitely some of my most favorite photos, and they proved to be especially fun to photograph with the macro lens.

I've included the focal length used to take each photo at the end of each caption.
