A very nice macro series. Those are beautiful and well portrayed. Enjoyed your others also, felt almost like I was at the show. Thanks for sharing.

I for one have always had a hard time with orchids, somehow I find them hard to get nice shot of and the pictures never seem to convey their actual beauty. You've certainly managed it here though. Very much like #2 - up close and personal!

Very nice pictures.

There is a big orchid display going on at The Bronx Botanical Gardens. My girl friend and I hope to catch it before it closes.

Was going to go there this past weekend but it was too cold to get motivated to drive there . With all the cold and wind here in Brooklyn, NY it was more of a indoor Netflix weekend :G.

Nice shots. The wife and I went to an orchid greenhouse complex once for a show and learned lots of things. What we did not learn is how to keep the ones we bought alive though. So we never went back. It was good to see your pictures and remember.

In case you want it, below is the code to make your pictures a clickable link back to flickr. Put the image code you used between the two [img] boxes, and the one from the top of the page right after the equal sign. I doubt flickr would ever notice, but their TOS says you have to have pictures link back to their site. I have this in a file on my desktop and use it all the time here and other places.
