Looks Like A Purple Patch

A few hours ago I saw a clump of irises and as I examined them I realised this iris was so symmetrical that it was almost a mirror image of itself. The light was very strong, but I had to contend with irregular shade patterns across the flower. Like I always say, that's the joy of photographing objects that are outdoors. The real challenge lies in making the best use of the prevailing conditions.
