the dietes grandiflora - the large wild iris also known as the "fairy iris" is a somewhat non discript indigenous (south african) lily, until it flowers en masse! this is but one bloom - I love the colours and amazing detail, which looks like it's been painted on.
I made a comment yesterday to a fellow blogger, that what I love about macro photography is the fact that you really get to see and notice all the finer details which you normally would not even notice - and this is a perfect example.
