What doesn't come across in Mickey's photo of William Mohr--due to the limitations of focus range, depth of field and resolution of an Instamatic, and not to any shortcoming of Mickey's--is the very precise and clean netting and veining of the flower--very strongly resembling that of the oncocyclus parent, *Iris gatesii.*  The blurring of the fine detail does show how strongly the Eupogon side of this hybrid's ancestry *also* comes through.  I didn't realize--or remember--how much yellow there was in William Mohr's beard.  I am glad Mickey  found the photo giving us a chance to see it.
