When I got my Canon PowerShot A640 in the early Summer of 2007 I started taking various shots in the backyard. This image of a purple Iris was one of the first macro shots I had ever taken, and definitely one of my most popular images here on RedBubble. It was named Iris’ Tongue because it looked to me like it was sticking out it’s “tongue”.

“Iris’ Tongue II” has been shown as a part of the Flower Power Project Exhibition in Frisco, Texas.

“Iris’ Tongue II” is available in all print formats offered by RedBubble.
