[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
In Xcaret Mayan Orchid Greenhouse you will have the opportunity to see 25 hybrid plants and 89 of the 105 species endemic to this Xcaret Mayan region.
Nowadays, more than 615 orchid species are endangered in Mexico. The main threat to these beautiful Xcaret Mayan Orchids is the loss of their natural habitat due to the destruction of forests for agricultural purposes.
Xcaret Mayan Orchid Greenhouse is proud to contribute to the reproduction and conservation of Xcaret Mayan orchid species as a means of preserving our rich Mayan heritage.

I am a newcomer in plants photography so all feedback are welcome :)

If anyone knows the name of this orchid - please let me know. Please see my other photographs about orchids.

Salut Sandrine,

j'aime bien cette photo.
Essaye quand même de jouer sur le couple ouverture/vitesse en décalant. Mets toi en mesure spot, passe en 200 ou 400 iso et essaye d'augmenter ta profondeur de champs à f/11 voire 14. Pour la vitesse l'idéale est d'avoir l'équivalent de sa focale 105mm 1/100e...
Essaye et poste le résultat
Bonne continuation
