Hello! Good Morning!
Hope you all are doing fine.

Today's upload is another montage and this time it's that of two types of orchids. Once Sikkim could brag of having more than 400 types of orchids but now most of them come under "endangered species", especially the one on the left side (yes, the one in two shots clicked last year); reason being: ongoing environmental changes. The one on the right is a simple hybrid that I clicked just the other day.

Meanwhile, I'd like to thank you for seeing my last upload. In fact your lovely comments have made my nephew, now seven years old, very happy.
Thanking you,
Best regards.

The endangered species is paphiopedilum venustum, mostly found in the Himalayan belt. Great capture since these days we hardly get to see this particular species. .. (another global warming effect). A good photo documentation of the endangered species; and the hybrid on the right acts as a good contrast. Well done.

Hello Debu,
I love the lavender background to these orchids. The lift out the fragile hues in the petals. Beautifully presented images. So much clarity and fine detail. Intricate work of nature.

Hello Rani, I do apologise I called you by the wrong name. I was looking at more than one window, and got a bit mixed up. Rani you have a spectacular PF and beautiful collection of flowers and exotic orchids.
