Linda, the reason you get blue when you take pictures of dark iris is
thst the camera is trying to make the picture a grey, its what cameras
do.  Check the foliage and you will see it is way too pale.
 Find out how to use exposure compensation for your camera and reduce
exposure . You will need to experiment a little but I find a 2/3 to
full stop underexposure works best for me with very dark purple.
