California-Sue often posts close-ups so I thought I would try some this morning. It would be fun to see more close-ups here.

To take a good picture you need a good subject such as a well grown iris, a good camera, and patience to take 10 and select the best 1. Mary Ann.......you take wonderful pictures, IMHO they are as good as any here on the iris forum. Ken.....those are 2 nice close-ups. I'll look forward to seeing more from you.

Love that red beard on White Hot, I added that one to my collection last year. Orange Mash looks like it has a twin beard going.
