beautiful capture of this Lady's Slipper Orchid with good sharpness and beautiful colours. These plants are really difficult to shoot, because of the sun glitter on the yellow "shoe". You have tried to resolve this problem with the PP, but I think I can see this on the upper left part of the "shoe". In my opinion PP always should be invisible to the eye.

You have been lucky to see so many of these marvellous flowers, which exist in my country too in the wild, but I haven't seen them for many years. A very difficult flower to photograph and with the sun on the "slipper" even more. Very well composed picture and taken from a good pont of view. I'm sure Ulla was delighted to see them :-)

What a picture! Bravo my friend, this is outstanding. I cannot say more than this is a PPP - Pretty, perfect, picture. I am seriously jealous. It is just so gorgeous. Photography at its best. Thanks for sharing this wonderful image filled with such a splendour of colour and glamour. Best regards.
ps. Years ago, Loot also had a great orchid collection as a hobby and I remember him also having some Slipper Orchids.

We have them Maritime Canada, although I've never found one. This image is as good as finding one in the wild though - the colors magical, the focus exceptional, & the lighting & focus professional. Congratulations on this beautifully engineered image!
