Japanese iris in the spotlight

The mix of sun and shade during my recent afternoon visit to the Earl Burns Miller Japanese Garden at California State University, Long Beach, led to this dramatic portrayal of a stately Japanese iris at the edge of the koi pond. (Olympus E-5 & Zuiko 70-300mm zoom at 190mm [380mm in full-frame 35mm equivalent], f/8, 1/640 sec., ISO 200, afternoon sun)
