SDB: Ray of Light (T. Johnson '05)

Hi everyone!
Here is RAY OF LIGHT, a 2005 introduction from Thomas Johnson. 
It is not labeled as a re-bloomer, so this is a "fall bloom."  RAY OF LIGHT is one of those SDB's that you could almost step on before you actually see it.  Well, I was blessed enough to see the bud before I stepped on it! ;-)
I noticed that my photo turned out much like the description of the iris . . . with colors in the range of "Hot pink and red."  However, in reality, the iris is much more darker.  I did not have any time to study this bloom when the sun was shining brightly, and that may make a difference in my eye's perception. :-)  However, it does have the "black spider-webbing veins" that it should! 
What a cutie!
Happily from Michigan,
