“Let’s Partaaayyy!”…

By ChiliMan
…says Mr Googly Eyes in V1.

Ok…here are some Miltonia hybrids (never seen or heard of ‘em before) from the flower show…close-ups followed by pulled back shots. The close-ups ain’t that great in terms of deep focus to get everything sharp…

…but I was on a learning jaunt with the Olympus during the flower show so hopefully I’ll do better with floral shots from now on.

Besides, this is a Silly Sunday upload so I trust you’ll forgive me Wink


PS Gonna upload and run and will catch up on your pics soon. Hope you’ve all had a great weekend SmileSmile

Some great macro images here Andrew, bit harsh on my eyes though, but that's only because I had a skin full of the local brew last night......Hic!
