I had to get this picture in somewhere on the blog. A little bit of googling brought me to 'O'. Inevitably, while I was away, my Japanese iris began blooming. It is well named: Iris ensata 'Cry of Rejoice'. I scurried out to take pictures, and was joined by this guy. (There's something about the architecture of the bug that makes me think 'guy', even though I know that's about a 50-50 probability.)
I thought my macro capabilities on this camera sucked. Evidently not.
Naturally, I have to include a better picture of the iris, too.
