While climbing Jerai Hill, we saw a wild specie of orchid. Quite small and it has three petals symmetry.
The plants do noy flower much, but the leaves are plenty.

Hello Foozi,
Interesting Orchid which you have seen in the wild. We have some species in our Botanical garden which are called Leopard-Orchids which have also these brown spots like yours here. Nice color-combination and well presented plant.
Kind regards

Ciao Foozi. Razor details and sharp and wonderful colours even if low light. Excellene DOF MF!


Hello Foozi
Beautifully presented against a dark background. Excellent detail and colours.
However your plant is not an orchid, but an iris, Neomarica longifolia, a member of the Iridaceae.
regards yiannis

Hi Foozi,

The vegetation is aframing well the flower. The point of view is showing with precision the details and colors of the wild orchid. The afternoon light is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.


Bonjour Foozi,
Très belle macro bien composée valorisant le sujet par l'appréciation de la finesse des détails et de la délicatesse des couleurs.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Ténue luz muy adecuada que sirvió para captar esos difíciles colores amarillos.

Hi Foozi.
Simply amazing flower and you managed to represent it at the most attractive manner. Superb DOF. The whole flower is details perfectly. Details are ultimate. BG is also simply splendid. Blurriness, colours are fine. Bravo. Well done.

Hello Foozi,

Those flowers are amazing creations indeed!
This one is very well recorded, the accurate DoF adds a sense of 3D and makes the subject really stand out...
A lovely colour palette too, as the yellow contrasts nicely with the all green background!
