You were warned :-). Another iris from Diane's garden.

PP: Cropped, resized, sharpened.
The frame border was created with layers.

Iris flower
The iris flower is of special interest as an example of the relation between flowering plants and pollinating insects. The shape of the flower and the position of the pollen-receiving and stigmatic surfaces on the outer petals form a landing-stage for a flying insect, which in probing the perianth for nectar, will first come in contact of perianth, three with the stigmatic stamens in one whorl surface which is borne and an ovary formed of three carpels. The shelf-like transverse projection on the inner whorl under side of the stamens, which is beneath the over-arching style arm below the stigma, so that the insect comes in contact with its pollen-covered surface only after passing the stigma, while in backing out of the flower it will come in contact only with the non-receptive lower face of the stigma. Thus, an insect bearing pollen from one flower, will in entering a second, deposit the pollen on the stigma, while in backing out of a flower, the pollen which it bears will not be rubbed off on the stigma of the same flower.

Hello to those of you that are just looking.
And HELLO and THANK YOU VERY MUCH to those of you that take the time to leave critiques/comments/workshops :-).
People from a planet without flowers would think we must be mad with joy the whole time to have such things about us.

Bonjour Pierre,
Vous avez une belle avance sur nous! Les iris ne seront pas en fleur avant un bon trois semaines ici!
Tu pourrais te faire une belle collection avec encadrement sur les murs de ta maison!
Excellents détails et acuité et superbe luminosité! Bravo! Annie

Bonjour PIerre, quelle belle macro de ton iris. Les goutelettes sont tres nettes et ajoutent de la beaute.
Tres belles couleurs et bien eclairees.
L'arriere plan en vert et jaune font ressortir les couleur de l'iris.

Bravo et bonne journee, Yan :)

Bonjour Pierre,
Une jolie présentation de cette iris réhaussée par ces fines gouttes d'eau vaut la peine de s'y arrêter et de contempler le travail artistique que tu as effectuer sur cette jolie fleur aux subtiles couleurs qui malheureusement est bien éphémère, Félicitations
Amicalement Odile

Hi Pierre,
Very nice colors and details of this lovely flower. I love that yellow "hair-like" center.
Wonderful pp work.

WOW!! You did a great job with this one Pierre! The details, the drops!! Mesmerizing! I think this photo would hold it's own, without a frame, but I know it's your style!
Great work!

Hi Pierre,

Wow! . . Crispy clear and fine details of the petals . .
Lovely orchid from this close . .
You did great my friend . . with those drops that shows freshness . .

Bonsoir Pierre,
Magnifiques les couleurs de cet iris!
La définition des pétales et des gouttes d'eau qu'on y trouve est remarquable. La présentation enrichit encore, si c’est possible, cette splendide production.
Triple bravo!

Well at least you are not pushing up daisies.
Belle composition de l'iris, soleil apres la pluie et ton pp lui donne encore plus d'eclat.

A stunner!! I love OOB work and this is a classic. The super sharp central image, cool water drops and all, just leap out of the screen.
Very nice, very well done. :)
I'm so jealous. ;0)
Thanks for the great view,

I always love this color!! Really beautiful detail once again and I like the framing very much. Also, I wonder if Diane is 'up for rent'??? TFS and have a great day!

Hoi Piet,
Missed quite some postings I'm afraid, sorry. This one is striking, great sharpness and nice vivid colours. The frame suits well here. A cheerful posting my friend!

La variété ne date pas d'hier, mais la photo est charmante.
