Thank goodness for Wikipedia for without  it I would have totally messed up the spelling of ‘dietes’.

Wikipedia was also able to inform me that as well as being known as the dietes, it is also call a variety of other names depending on the area/country it is being grown.  

Some of these include Fortnight lilyAfrican irisMorea or Moraea irisJapanese iris and Butterfly iris.

I applied some shadow to the second and third photo to isolate the flower.  This is my favourite, probably even without shadow.  The flower seems to be in better condition and maybe my hands were not shaking as much as usual as I can actually see the detail in the petals.
