Thanks Harold!  Regelias are cool.  :)  I'm going to start collecting RB's
this summer.

Well, here's my secret.  I take at least 3 or 4 photos of an iris, then
change angles and take 3 or 4 more shots.  Sometimes even after all that
work, it's still too blurry and I have to go try again.

I never take photos in direct sunlight.  Cloudy days are perfect.  The
diffused sunlight doesn't cast shadows, and the camera picks up all the
subtleties of the flower.  Direct sunlight is far too harsh.  I also take
photos during the morning & evening when my flower beds are in full shade.

Sometimes if it's too shady, I need a tripod to hold the camera steady for
those longer exposures.
