Our daughter's favorite color. She has Purple Iris and Glads all over her yard =- This is another fantastic close up so beautifully handeled by that awesome 100 mm macro that you have, Bill! Perfectly lit - I can see every detail and this is so close up, I have the feeling I am an ant in a massic=ve world of purple. The stamen and the angle you have here, are magnificently detailed! Beautiful!
