Many thanks for your overwhelming echo to the little argus Smile
here is a wild orchid, they started coming out on Saturday . They are on the 'bush' airfiled of Argentine, about 3 kms from our home.
I don't often upload flowers but just had to make an exception here. The old manual 300 2.8 is my choice for that sort of picture.

A stunner, without doubt. Really like those diagonals, even down to the slightly off the straight stem and of course the colours and details of the Orchid flowers are so beautiful.

Exquisite capture Annette, the background softness with the sharp Orchid is very professional.

These are really beautiful orchids. Not just the colours but the patterning too. Must've been wonderful to see it in person Smile
