New Iris with jumping spider

First year growing this iris. I don't know the name, but it stood out, and was happy to see a little jumping spider.

Thank you so much for your positive comments. Smiling
Here is the original (looks like it was mirrored for the banner, which is better)

Great banner Cal!
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

I agree and Thumbs up Thumbs up for another wonderful banner, Cal.

It would seem that the Iris stood out to someone else. My DW love those little jumping spiders. The fuzzier and with big eyes, all the more better.
