Iris by Drew Smith

In early June, a large area of wetlands at Upper Herring Lake Nature Preserve, Michigan, fills with wild blue flag irises for a short period of intense beauty. Pro photographer Drew Smith found these irises along the boardwalk through the wetland. "This is my favorite image of one of these gorgeous flowers," the Virginia resident said. He used a Canon EOS 40D camera and a 24-105mm lens.
