Crested Dwarf Iris..
one of the earliest wild-flowers to bloom here in Virginia...They stay in clusters and their blooms are very close to the ground. Little beauties indeed...

Очень нежный рисунок. Интересно пересечение линий(парабол) собственно цветка и листьев на заднем плане.

the more i look at "Us and Our Shadows"...at dusk the fonder i am of these creatures
i have always liked them anyway
only here in this picture they are so much alive - as if reality were inferior to art
i have been silent towards you for a long time (something like a week now?) for good reasons (not that i should try to justify myself or anything) i could not sit down at my computer and do the usual work
but now i am back
the elegy is indeed long (i had to include it in three – if we count the epilogue too – `comments` messages for they kept telling me sorry but my commentary was too long) but as brilliant as they come
if only we could all do things at least as good as gray`s poem
some of us do succeed
in Crested Dwarf Iris.. i for one see something new when it comes to your work
for the first time, that is, the vegetal not the animal
although if i look at it again the picture shows me two birds in full flight one of them with this huge extraordinary violet plumage it should be the male the male is usually more beautiful in the animal world so as to manage to get the female`s attention when the time is ripe
the suggestion intentional i need to assume is great

Absolutely fabulous. (I have to confess: It`s one of my favourite flowers!). From the technique point of view it`s, of course, an excellent photo.
