Thanks for coming over to look at one of my Panoramio sites.

Much as this might look like an orchid, it is in fact an iris. I have very similar plants photographed on the Orkology panoramio site.

Thanks for the compliment on my photos (and hopefully it's not too confusing to get a response from one or bothof the aliases I operate in Panoramio!)

Cheers, Greg from eastern Australia

Thanks. I admit I just assumed it was an orchid. I don't know why, because we even have similar irises in our garden.

Thanks for your comment as well! I could make a 'wildflowers' tag, because most of the flowers I've put on Panoramio are wildflowers anyway. That's a good idea.

No worries. Your English is a whole lot better than my German!

howdy folks, I'd like to offer a --->"tamed iris" I happened to come upon last sommer...

p.s. and as you enjoy wildflowers, you'ld love a visit at the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center...

Hello Bartowian,

I have created a whole Panoramio alias - orkology by Greg Steenbeeke - to show off my photos of plants, including a great many Australian wildflowers.

Cheers, Greg

This is probably Iris versicolor, Blue Flag iris, which is native to large parts Canada east of the Rockies. A very pretty shot!

Love the photo, took a photo of one myself this morning. According to the SIGNA site it is a versicolor. I'll be posting my own photo on my site later today
