Macro on Monday - Guess What

There was just one correct identification to last week's Guess What so congratulations and the  gold star  go to John for correctly identifying `Stinking` Iris seed head (Iris foetidissima).

 P1030277 copy


In spite of its name I can't say I have ever noticed any particular odour though it is said that the crushed or bruised  leaves can have a beefy smell.

No new Guess What this week. All things being equal they will start again in the new year.


  1. Lovely shot of the Iris John.

    I knew I'd seen those seeds somewhere before; on the flag Iris, around my local lake. lol

  2. Glad to know John knew what it was! Quite a striking photo of the seeds.

    I have enjoyed your Christmas animated message and the brilliant closeup of your Christmas Pheasant. Nice that the bird is becoming more comfortable in your presence.

    What did Bobby get for Christmas?


Thank you for visiting. Hope you enjoyed the pictures. Any comment, or correction to any information or identification I get wrong, is most welcome. John
