Photo of the Day: Iris

If I've got my camera in my hand and there are flowers around, there's a good chance that I start taking pictures of them. I don't know why I do it… maybe I think they're pretty. I never know what to do with the flower pictures afterward - especially since they end up as part of a larger set of photographs that are completely unrelated. Here's a photo of an iris - the context of which I found it in my library? The 2005 Castroville Artichoke Festival. My guess is that there was a farmer's market there and one of the booths sold flowers and while looking for another photo opportunity, I took this picture - because it was there.
Handheld, 1/500 sec at f/5.6 on ISO 200, 70-200mm f/2.8 with 2x teleconverter
