During this year I am taking up a challenge to post a photo a day on this blog. I am a beginner photographer hoping to learn much about my camera and how to take photos.

This bloom is actually past its prime. I found it tucked away in the undergrowth today after a shower of rain. I was looking for a topic to photograph when I discovered this iris. I love these flowers and I was delighted to find this one.
The main point about this shot is that I am trying to use the manual focus on my camera rather than the auto point and shoot. A bonus was to see raindrops on some of the petals. Yes!
