Subject: [iris-photos] HYB: better shot of dark brown bitone
Been talking with Adam, offlist.Â Sent him this shot and decided you
all might enjoy it.Â ThisÂwas taken by a better photographer that I,
better equipment.Â Posted my shot 6-13-11.
Thing is, the foliage behind it makes it look dinky little, and it's
not.Â This was
shot in the swampy, north-facing slope, facing up to higher ground.Â
actually above average height for a TB.Â And, yes, the falls are that
especiallyÂnewly-opened.Â I had said before it had clean hafts.Â Not
quite true -
minimal haft marks.
If it behaves well enough, I will probably register it as Jerry Swann,
I promised him any iris named for him would be appropriately
masculine.Â He's 90
now, so I want to do it while he's still young enough to enjoy it.Â
