Spring, please hurry!

I am so ready for more color outside than just old snow, dead grass and mud.

Iris flowers are so hard to photograph. So here is a unique view of the spots at the base of the flower.

Shot with my D40 and the kit lens maxed to 55 mm, along with at least the +4 magnifier... and maybe another stacked on (this was last May, I don't remember). I ran the MCP Actions Mini Fusion (it's free!) action for a little pop.
