Today a slight change in direction for me, trying my hand and some other than birds subjects. This is an Early Purple Orchid taken on one of the rainiest days I have ever been out, it tipped down all day.

As always thanks for taking a look and your feedback would be very welcome.

All clicks, critiques and comments welcome

This is a lovely image, beautiful detail in the flower and a gorgeously diffused background to set it off.

Dull weather and overcast conditions, even rain, are the best for outdoor floral shots: you get a much better result, as this shot shows, than if the subject were bathed in full sunlight.
Beautifully presented.
Ronnie.

Superb capture and comp, Dave. Stunning detail, colours and soft, delicate natural bg tones, really making the vibrant colours of the orchid pop! Congrats on a well deserved HC.
