Blue Flag Iris (iris versicolor)


Just north of Stevens Point, Wisconsin, is the Dewey Marsh, home of mosquitoes and blue flag iris. Some consider the mosquitoe as our state bird, but most will list this iris as one of their favorite wildflowers.  Relatively common along our marshy water ways, it blooms in early summer.

This image was obtained in the Dewey Marsh and is an HDR composed of 4 different images obtained using an off camera flash. The flash unit was moved between each image in an effort to illuminate most of the iris. The flash was brought closer to the left on the last image to provide highlight.
