Beautiful close-up of this lovely orchid, which can be found in our north, too.
This image spoils my eyes, and I am enjoying every minute of it. This is indeed beautiful and the vibrant colours and the gorgeous shape of the orchid is a pleasure to look at and admire. It is a sheer delight to look at this pretty flower with its delicate features. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.
