I was lucky enough to be invited to shoot orchids at an orchid nursery this morning, it was heavenly to be surrounded by such beauty on a cold Maine morning!

All images done with the Composer, double glass element, macro kit, natural light.

These Botties remind me of the dragons in a Chinese parade, full of color and whirl .

Thanks very much, all! We had a big snowstorm the afternoon I shot these and lost power for 2 days. Quite a contrast to the balmy greenhouse and a reminder that spring is still quite a ways away in Maine! :)

Beauties as always Kath--have to agree with David on that last one and Ran on the over-all--very Dranonesque!

Really is a pleasure and an inspiration to see your work again . No 3 is a dendrobium kingii , native to SE Queensland Australia . One of our many little native gems captured so very tastefully.
