Delightful capture of this very strange plant, Albert.
The fill flash has highlighted each aspect of the sack beautifully while turning the BG fully dark.
Great composition, indeed.
TFS and regards.

Bonjour Albert,
Tout simplement magnifique! Magistralement photographié cette espèce sud-américaine. Elle ressemble beaucoup à notre Sabot de Vénus, mais en plus distingué encore!Quelle bonne idée d'avoir sorti cette image de tes archives.
Un beau dimanche

Hello Albert,
A fine capture of this orchid flower taken with excellent use of flash to achieve superb colours and sharpness.
To survive on a rocky habitat it must require a lot of moisture and high humidity!
Thanks and best regards,
Ivan
