A new Iris_Honeybee's perspective

I am very excited about my newest Iris, again this Iris was found at Butchart Gardens. I took a very close up shot of the centre of the flower. It immediately reminded me of a class I took in animal behaviour many years ago, and we learned about Apis Melifera the honeybee, and how they see flowers. The yellow veins of the Iris can be easily interpreted as a flight path leading into the well of stamens that hold the pollen that create the sweet nectar we call honey. yumm!
