this is such an unual orchid. I love orchids and have seen many different kinds. I don't think I ever seen this one before. Very nice image with good sharpness and clarity. The dark BG really show off the beautiful colors very well.

Bonsoir Ori
Magnifique cette Orchidée.
Très belle photo, Bravo et merci

Hi Ori

This is a great shot of this plant imitating an insect. Its facinating to try and understand how evolution has allowed this to occur.
Great sharpness and use of flash.
