Rain Drenched Iris
Photograph - Photography
Purple Iris close up flower photography fine art from the formal garden at Brookline Hall's Pond. I found a few of those rain drenched Irises and the purple floral stood out beautifully against the green background. The raindrops from an overnight rain shower added nice interest and detail to the composition.
Iris is a genus of 260�300 species of flowering plants with showy flowers. It takes its name from the Greek word for a rainbow, referring to the wide variety of flower colors found among the many species. As well as being the scientific name, iris is also very widely used as a common name for all Iris species, though some plants called thus belong to other closely related genera. A common name for some species is 'flags', while the plants of the subgenus Scorpiris are widely known as 'junos', particularly in horticulture. It is a popular garden flower.
