Another, perhaps peculiar representation of an orchid.
It is well known that these things are difficult to photograph. After many attempts, only this one remained.

Nicely done. Yes, they tend to be a difficult subject.

Thanks, Dennis.

Photography: 100 percent art, 100 percent technical. It takes a photographer to blend them into an image.

No, that is how you photograph an Orchid.

 

Well done.

 

Perfect light, WB and detail.

 

Like it!
