This small, beardless iris is indigenous to the Georgian Bay region. If you treat them kindly, they reward with arrays such as this. Last season I clustered a bunch at the top of the hill next to the bush line behind my cottage. At this time of night the blue is irridescent. This photo is untouched. I will play with it later but wanted you to see exactly what I saw on my walk home from a neighbour's cottage tonite. It wasn't the dark that kept me moving, but the mosquitos! I'm happy with this grab shot ... couldn't use macro because I didn't want the shot filled with swarming, stinging, nasty little creatures.

    Nice! At one time we had around 1000 varieties of irises, many spectacular in color & form but one of my favorites is a white indigenous variety similar to this.
