The man I got it from says he has Vavoom. I took the picture as it opened. That could account for the difference in form.

I wouldn't say that was a match. The flaring is a little different, the
yellow doesn't quite match, the standards are domed differently. and
the ruffling looks not quite right.

By the same token it could be pictures were taken at different times in
the bloom development, and the cameras recorded the colors differently.

Just some of the issues in the great difficulty in identifying an iris
from pictures.
