I was reminded of a bird in flight, hence the title: proved quite a difficult job to capture this double stemmed orchid but I hope you feel it was worth it.

My thanks to all who commented on Loco 3007.

Ronnie.

KS detail and colour but with a different but still well-balanced composition. The panorama/letterbox format is spot on, Ronnie.

A beautiful orchid, lovely detail in the flowers. Some areas of the stems are merging into the bg a little. Very difficult to deal with as the black bg is great for the blooms.Smile

I can appreciate your problem - I find it difficult to have enough space
when taking a wide or tall arrangement.
However your quick thinking title covers your dilemma and we get to see the beauty of both stems.
