    Yes, I know this one. This is certainly not an orchid, this is the Wild Iris, Iris missouriensis to be complete.
    The long tall slim leaves in the upper left corner are from this species and they do look a bit like orchid leaves.
    I had to look this part up but it is also called Blue Flag and Rocky Mountain Iris.In the Western US this plant is native to Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Utah, Washington, Wyoming.

    Very pretty!
