Ah well, after the excitement of photographing people at the Glasgow Botanics Orchid Fair it's back to the stars of the show - the orchids.
Most of the good ones have already been featured by Ronnie AG & Graham, aka Digital Boi, but I don't think they showed this one.
V1 A phaleonopsis hybrid of the "brother" family ( you can tell by the shape of the petals) but not sure which one it is as I forgot to make a note of the name.
The plain yellow petals are unusual as normally this family have spotted or striped petals.
V2 a quite stunning little pure white pleione, again unusual colour as they are normally cream or pink with striations.

Glad you captured something different form Ronnie and Graham!
I love V1 in particular. I find it difficult to get the image I'd like at these exhibitions.
You've managed well here in having no distractions.
Thank you fro supporting Pat & I tonight - it was a bit nerve wrecking!

Thanks Kate. The trick is to move the plants around a little bit to get the best viewpoint. Knowing the traders helps as they don't usually mind.
You did a good job with your presentation, not easy for a first time in front of that noisy rabble!

Two very nice close-ups of this pretty phaleonopsis, Adrian: although I tried for a few close-upslike this, I tended to settle more for the bigger scene.
Ronnie.
