All About Flags...Part TWO

Today, I am finishing my blogposts about beautiful wild, Flag Iris...
(If you missed Part ONE, just drop below this blogpost to see it).

When I got out in the wilderness and saw the wonder of Iris everywhere, 
I just had to take a ton of photos!



They were found a lot along small ponds way out in the woods, in glorious clumps:






Amongst the lily pads:






Reflecting in the waters:







Partnering with the dandelions:






Each one, an individual beauty:







Sharing the stage with yellow water lilies:







I loved how this looked like a little circular island, full of them:







Each one an individual miracle:







Just look up closer!:







A magical spot for them to live:







An entire field of them!:







Each one is gorgeous:























And stunning also in groups:







I loved this spot.
Old, twisted wood, a pond and if you look in the background....
a garden of wild flag iris:
I stayed at that pond for quite a while...
just taking in all the wild beauty....


and...
while I did,
another beautiful moment arrived:
A butterfly landed right beside the iris....

What more could a photographer ask for????

I have never seen irises growing wild they provide such beauty. No wonder you could stay for ages. The shots are stunning.

The wider shots of the pond just struck me today! So secluded and peaceful. I think the one I love the best is the one with the clump of irises growing out in the middle of the water! You never fail to amaze us with the beauty of nature. :)

I wrote a long post and guess someone else was doing same because I got wiped out and it said start over. grrrr
are Iris and Flags the same. I have Iris all over my yard but they look a little larger and not quite so fragile.
