I just happened to visit a nursery on Saturday and took this shot of an iris. If its not an iris, lets just call it a flower.

This one worked really well - lots of detail but very subtle as befits the subject. From the leaves I'd think it's probably a canna lily.

Beautiful color and texture of both the leaves and flower.

Who cares what type of flower it is, when it's this pretty? Really like your processing.

Thanks mtngal. I never thought a nursery would have so much good stuff to photograph this time of the year.

Don't know about over there but the weather in the UK has really confused the plants this year. We've had all sorts of stuff flowering when you wouldn't expect it so definitely worth keeping your eyes open.
