Dwarf lake iris


Dwarf lake iris, Iris lacustris, photographed yesterday along gravelly shorelines of Lake Huron in Presque Isle County, Michigan. This elfin beauty is but one of many species of interesting plants that we are encountering on our forays as part of the NettieBay Lodge birding & botany expeditions.

Excellent, Jim! I'm heading up to the Bruce Peninsula in mid-June to see some long-awaited life species and this is on that list. I really hope it's still in bloom by then :/.

Really great blog. My friends referred me your site. Looks like everyone knows about it. I'm going to read your other posts. Take care. Keep sharing.

You'll see tons up there, Andrew, especially orchids. The iris will probably be past but with luck, a few will still be hanging on.
