One of the more colorful and beautiful wildflowers that I frequently see is the harlequin blueflag or Iris versicolor. This member of the iris family is native to North America and can usually be found in a wetland habitat such as marshes, stream banks or the shores of lakes and ponds. I photographed this harlequin blue flag in the Purgatory Creek wetlands.
