"Flight of Fancy"

By RonnieAG
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.

The flower upper left looks like the head of an exotic insect with multi-wings spread out around it, Ronnie.
A different composition that does work.
