A beautiful image but not sure it needed the dragonfly.

Gorgeous light on the flowers. Like Albert, I'm not sure that this needs the dragonfly clip. But a close-up of the dragonfly could be a different matter...

I had a problem with the butterfly clip as I was certain I was going to break it if I removed it and the other half would not have been pleased! Smile

Hey hey...I like that dragonfly clip Grin

And yep, it's needed. This looks like a Phalaenopsis and I don't think I've ever seen one upright without a clamp or clip.

Lovely shot, Ken.
