Green Veined Orchid

By mialewis  
I took this last summer - I had no idea there were so many varieties of these wild orchids in England!! I thought orchids were mainly in the tropics!!

I used the 100-400 lens at 380 to create the narrow DoF.

The dof in this is really great but what makes this so very stunning I think is the way thew orchid seems to slowly appear from the bottom of the image. Really lovely shot.

Nice shot of this - we have wild orchids growing in places in Norway too - they are quite small, and I guess this is fairly small also. They are lovely.
