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.
