    This is a beautiful photograph Bo and so perfectly composed – it reminds me of when I was in my late 20’s and I visited the Glasgow Botanical Gardens to take resource photos of flowers and my favourites were the orchids. I was dressed a little bit colourfully that day in a pastel pink, shiny raincoat and blue cord jodphurs. Two visitors to the gardens took my photograph while I was photographing the orchids and I still have those pictures of flowers as slides – wow! sorry your picture just brought back a chapter in my life!

    Lovely and I like the way the orchids were captured giving depth. 🙂

    Orchids are among my favorites. The two prominent blooms seem to be looking at us while we look at them. The bud in the foreground seems like it could jump out of the picture and bloom in my office.

    Very nice.

    Great subject Barbara! Beautiful color and composition – even your DOF is spot on. You really nailed this one.

    Wonderful flowers! I was thinking of buying one in the last few days, what a coincidence…! 🙂

    Beautiful picture nicely captured. I love the baby birds that one can see in the middle of orchids.

    A warm glasshouse full of flowers has an appeal!

    Oh my! Those are beautiful! And what a fabulous shot… I get the strong impression your one of those crazy photographers who aren’t afraid to get on their belly to get a shot! What a beautiful shot!

    These two beautiful orchids just pop right out of the photo. The background is very nice, too.
