Indeed, that Iris is endemic to South Africa, it's practically in every garden - mine too.

It could be my monitor settings, but to my mind, the white on the flower is still quite far from being blown out?

A good photo starts with a good lens.

The flower is gorgeous, I would have preferred to push out the left side plant leaf to avoid the shadow that fell on the left petal. Would it be unnatural though?

Mark - I envy you your garden if it's full of these flowers. They are really a fun flower.

Chesslanka - you are right, I should have held the leaf so that it didn't cast a shadow. I find it hard to do that when I'm not using a tripod though (and I wasn't this day). Wouldn't have been unnatural at all, just assisting nature.
