Ah, there you go, much better. And now the depth of field -- I am forever fighting to get a good depth of field when photographing certain flowers up close and personal. Zig's suggestion for using focus stacking software sounds like a route to try to obtain a nice "crispy" sharp image of the entire orchid blossom.

thanks all - for your comments. I will hopefully get another couple of tries with this orchid before the blooms fall. These plants are pretty amazing, when they bloom the flowers stay the same for weeks into months. They almost appear fake. We have another that has purple blooms that has nothing now and will be a few months from what we hear before another shoot comes up from the base and drops out beautiful flowers. I think if the person who dropped these here for safe keeping ends up taking them back I will need to buy some to replace these...

And yes I will definitely try some helicon focus stacking next go round. I am jealous of the cameras that are supported for helicon remote after reading about that
