Hello Arthur,

thanks a lot for this fantastic photos, this plants are very seldom seen - I am very interested in Oncos and I try my best to grow some  in eastern part of Spain - so I am always glad to see picture taken in their natural habitat.

All the best,
Hans

Lovely Iris especially the 'moleskin' ones. They have orchid like markings on them

Smashing Arthur. With a climate like mine looking at pictures of them is the best I can do.

The moleskin would apply to the signal spot on the falls which many of the arils have I should imagine - it does feel like velvet to me.
