Description:
This guy was at least an inch across! Great color (kof, kof), plus I love that dark, dark bud! The common iris around here is Sisyrinchium bellum, but I don't think this is it. Stockier and darker, bigger flowers. Help with ID welcome! More possibilities: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sisyrinchium Location: trail to the beach just north of Piedra Blanca lighthouse. Beach is closed until the end of the month -- still lots of female and juvenile elephant seals, which are fun to watch
