Subject: [iris-photos] HYB: Black irises
These pictures represent two different types of black
irises. In daylight, it is impossible for the camera to record these
irises as black as they look to the eye. Rather it reveals the dominant
color, which in 31-52 B is purple and in 63-75 A is red.
Chuck Chapman wrote about clusters of globules of Anthrocyanin
intensifying the color of black irises. I am wondering if the same
mechanism is at work in intensifying the color of red irises?
