Hans, Another beautiful species!   As for the bees, I wouldn't expect the same species in the Balearic Islands, but fairly similar irises are endemic through southern Europe and I'd expect similar bee species to be co-distributed throughout the area.   Your pictures support this view.   I will be fascinated to see just what species they are.   Well dome!

Thanks a lot Fred and Peter!
Re Bees: Doubt  if I will ever find out which species are here around, there are no native Iris on the Balearic Islands so perhaps it is a "newer"adaptation of the bee species to use Iris flowers at night. ::)

Hans, you are living in paradise  :o
In my garden, there are hardly any pollinators because I live in the center of the town.

Iris nigricans is in flower in my garden.

Back to nature...
In the north of Israel 3 Oncos are blooming now (a trip with one of the forumists  :)) )

Seems to be a nice trip Miriam, and my best regards to our 'forumist'  ;) ;D
Iris hermona is stunning ! Did you also see Iris petrana ( I. yeruchamensis ) ?

It would  be so great to be able to see these arils in their natural settings - as well as on a grave.

Thanks a lot Miriam - for someone who is interestest to keep the pure species  it is a paradise ... and a nightmare with all the insects. ;)

Great pictures Miriam! Grows Iris hermona only on this grave or does it also grow in the surroundings?
