Iris

Iris, photo by Harold Davis. View this image larger.

I photographed this Iris in my garden straight down using a telephoto macro len during a lull in the violent but brief rains we’ve been having over the last couple of weeks.

The wind and weather bent and contorted the flower petals; when the bright sun emerged—and I made this photo—there were water drops on the underside of some transparent petals. These water drops display as their negative, a shadow surrounded by a bright ring of light. The most noticeable of these is about one third of the way up the photo, and a little to the right.
