Monkey Orchid Orchis simia
taken at KWT Park Gate Down
Fanciful monkey-like flowers, borne in cylindrical heads; unlike other orchids the flowers open in succession from the top downwards and are vanilla scented.
Flower shot in situe against an opaque white perspex background, using flash from behind to create the pure white. No plants were disturbed during the creation of this image.
