I cannot resist these beautiful blooms.
Falling into the swamp lined with duck weed this stem of purple Iris created a colorful reflection.
Depending on where I stood the water either reflected the sky or the green fronds of the standing patch of iris.
A closer look at the stem reveals flowers in various stages of bloom.
This last image was taken about an hour later from about the same spot as the first one above, with the sun no longer directly on the flower.
Irises have erupted in bright splashes of color around the marsh and swamp.
These purple beauties are my favorite, at least today.
