230 Macro Monday: Death of an Iris

My irises are fading quickly, but there is always beauty to be found in nature.
Especially when you get up-close and personal.
Or maybe I am just a little strange for taking pictures of dead flowers.
Whatever :) Macro Monday is hosted by Lisa's Chaos

Head on over and check out the other Macro Monday pictures, and please! join in on the fun if you feel the urge!

My irises are just now blooming. They have lost all of their color - they are almost completely white.

Great shots - they almost look like they are just starting to bloom.

Wow! Who knew there were so MANY colors present. That's what I love about macro shot ... the extreme detail that reveals things I wouldn't normally notice.

Lovin' Macro Monday,
