My Iris


                          This is my Iris and they are in bloom. I remember few years ago when I got it from the first time this is not the original color. Before it was a bit of red and pink but now the peach color is dominant and it is just beautiful and they are in bloom!! I am juggling if I will cut two or three flowers to put in a vase or just remain it in the garden and let it  withered. Suggestion?

                                      More to see macro shots here at MACRO MONDAY

Wonderful photos of wonderful iris, Kim! I think they wither faster when cut only lasting a couple days. :(

It sure is a pretty iris! I should get outside and take a close up of mine. You have inspired me.

Beautiful! It's always a dilemma with flowers isn't it? Cut them to enjoy inside the house, or leave them outside, see less of them, but then they last longer!

This is a wonderful looking flower, a great macro shot as well.

and to answer your question, for the regular 1:1 macro shot im using a tamron 60mm macro lens.

for the super macro, beyond 1:1- i am using 68mm extension tube+ tamron 60mm macro+ nikon 50mm reverse mounted on the tamron + window light.

magnification can be push a bit more closer by adding a 2x teleconverter lens to the setup

Hi, I'm late to Macro Monday this week, many days late! You asked why my peony took so long to bloom. I had purchased a part of a plant at a yard sale and it took that long to recover!
I love your iris, they are so pretty.
