Spider Orchids

By JJGEE
Brassia - Eternal Wind

One from a few weeks ago when I visited the Orchid Exhibition at the RHS Garden, Wisley.

Although not in their natural habitat these orchids displayed in a cabinet make it great for "unclutttered" shots. Wink

I was speaking to a lady yesterday who pointed me in the direction of a place where wild orchids are growing naturally.... so a trip down to Ferring Rife in West Sussex beckons, if I get time Wink

A stunning orchid, beautifully captured. I didn't know about wild orchids in Ferring Rife, and I lived in Worthing for over 20 years! Carol
