        Thank you!!  It works.  Attached are two pictures of the same iris.  
(12a) is as my camera takes it on "auto" and the other (9a) is as my camera
takes it with the white balance adjusted.

This is a common problem with digital. I find that by using a non-auto mode
(where I can change the white balance) I use a different white balance
setting to correct. Eg in my Fuji S7000 I take yellows and whites in Auto
mode, but blues and purples I take on a manual setting using "daylight
fluorescent" white balance. This gives almost exactly the right colour for
purples and blues. If I'm not sure I shoot in two different WB modes and
pick the one that is closest. Sometimes my yellows look a bit too gold, so I
might also shoot in a "landscape" which on my camera tends to put a slight
green/yellow tint on things and correct yellow colours.

Every camera make is different. It's a good idea to practice shooting a
whole range of colours with different white balance settings, and get to
know instinctively which way your camera may throw the colour. After a while
you will be able to easily pick the setting you should use.

But I still find digital far easier than film where I had to contend with
inconsistent variations in processing colour balance and then scanning.

The other day Dana was talking about the effect some digital cameras have
showing purple. Here is a perfect example. The Iris is actually a beautiful
shade of Lavender, Purple edging on falls and deep purple veins. I have
retaken this picture with a normal SLR and as soon as I get the CDS back,
I'll repost. It really  is a striking beauty.....JUST NOT BLUE !
