This specimen of Iris spuria 'Premier' caught my attention because right next to the existing flower, another bud was already preparing to bloom. It is very fascinating how the future pattern of the petals can already be seen in the bud. I used selective manual focus stacking.
The subtle bokeh in the background, which hints at further blooms, integrates the flower into the garden context.
