My zoom camera has a back lit feature. The pictures I took with that and the sun to the side and slightly behind the flower seemed to catch the color best. But I suspect that what works well with one camera may not work with another. I agree that taking a lot of pictures is the best way to get good ones but I don't like to spend too much on film. I'd rather buy more iris.VBG I think digital camera's would be the way to go with lots of pictures and when they get cheaper, I want one.

I try to get as close as I can, at the flower's height. But have to
be at least a few feet away, otherwise comes out fuzzy. Also its best
to take pictures on a sunny day, but not at high noon. Worst is at
dusk or a gray/rainy day; but you can take great pictures at dusk
with the flash; the background comes out black; kind of dramatic.
But I think the most important thing is, for me anyways, is to take
TONS of pictures; cause alot don't come out that good and get tossed.
Digital cameras are great for that!
How about everyone else? What do you think helps achieve good digital
