I'm quite pleased with this orchid, it's the 4th year that it has flowered and has 36+ blooms and buds. [ I think my thumb is turning green].
V1& 2 are different angles of the same stem. v3 is the whole plant in my 'Heath Robinson' studio. Both images were multiple exposures focus stacked in PS.

Very good capture of this lovely orchid
I have a white one which has bloomed for 3 years, but not reached your standard with a green thumb or fingers yetTongue

Beautiful pictures, Orchids are such a beautiful flower, years ago you would never see one in someones house because they were so specialized and difficult to keep
