This image is created from time-lapse photographs of purple Irises made over a period of 72 hours as they flowered.
Iris was the Greek goddess of the rainbow and the messenger of the Olympian gods. Clothed in a cloak of raindrops, she communicated via a rainbow, the bridge between Heaven and Earth. This may explain why the iris flower is said to symbolise communication and eloquence. Irises come in different colours which have different meanings but the most common and well-known is the purple iris, which is associated with faith, courage, and wisdom.
