In Chinese, this kind of orchid is called Dancing Orchid. The flower is like a clown dancing in the air.

Taken with the Nikkor macro 105 on a D70 with the aid of 2 Nikon flashes.

WK I really like the first one. Being such a conviluted flower keeping the frame simple works best here. Nice stuff.:-)

Sorry that I don't know the name for the orchid you posted. It is a common species in Hong Kong. Here are some that I took in a floral exhibition that took place in March this year in Hong Kong.

The 3rd and 4th are the same as yours, I think.

By the way, it really has been a long time since my last posting of pictures in the 'Close-ups' corner.

Here is the 1st shot.
