First one this spring!!

By annettep38  
Please let me apologize, I started catching up and then I got rally drowned in work and also had to tend to Chris who was in hospital. He's back home and I managed to get a few shots yesterday, the very first orchids are out on the Plateau d'argentine.
So this is specially for Sylvia Smile

I must have been a sight on all for on the ground with my 'wobbly' lens.

A very special belated thank you to Alex Appleby!

The orchids are beautiful and the "suns in the bg make this image sing!
I can hardly wait for my wife's flowers to start coming in. But at least the spring is finally arriving. Congratulations on a beautiful picture!

The fast shutter speed to counteract your 'wobbly' lens then? Dof and colour looks very good, Annette, you can get up now Grin

Beautifully captured Annette, glad to hear Chris is out of hospital, I know how you feel Rob has been in hospital 12 days with another 7 to go in rehab...

And what a delightful bloom to come across, and so beautifully captured.

A nice rich purple -- that sets off well against the oof yellow behind it.
PS My best to Chris. Stay healthy, my friend.
