Green Winged Orchid

By johnjo58
Today a white Green Winged Orchid, my understanding is these are unusual as they are normally red. This one was taken on a very rainy day with just a touch of backlighting

Thanks for taking a look, as always all comments, clicks and critiques welcome.

Thanks to all for your attention on the last upload especially SUE118 for her UA

A lovely shot, especially the light shining through the petals.

Absolutely exquisite, Dave - lovely detail and tones and the most glorious rich warm light shining through the petals and adding a wonderful glow to this beautiful orchid.

The back lighting really enhances this delicate wee wild orchid, David: I have never come across one this colour.
Beautifully captured and presented.
