Mother’s Day Iris

The wild iris that grow in the fields behind our house have really taken off in the last week.  So yesterday I went out around mid morning to see if I could come up with a decent shot.

Thankfully it wasn’t windy yet and just a intermentant breeze wafted by.  With the sun high in the sky it was hot and humid.  I found myself wishing for a breeze, although that would’ve been a bit counter productive!

I brought along a white nylon skrim to shade the iris and reduce the harsh late morning light.

We’re supposed to get some high winds today, which is typical for spring.  Unfortunately the iris are pretty delicate and will likely take a beating.  Hopefully there will be more blooming in the coming week.

Happy Mother’s Day!
