    The light was good and pretty much all my orchids are blooming at the moment so I though I'd take a few snapshots of them.

    Taken with Nikon D5100, Nikkor 18-200VR, SB400 flash and Canon 500D closeup lens. The 500D is too small (52mm) for the 18-200VR so there is some vignetting, but I don't mind for this kind of shot.

    Chris, thank you - they are truly beautiful. If you'd like to you can embed your photographs right here in the threads https://www.photographerslounge.org/f17/how-post-images-forum-threads-45/. It's quite easy with the HTML code from Flickr option.

    I good friend of mine has orchids and whenever I see them, I feel a great sense of calm and order...of course her house is also pristine and has wonderful light.:wink:

    Beautiful flowers and quite difficult to photograph I've found. I love them, buy them and then they flower for a while and then die off, never to flower again! Must be doing something wrong.

    Mine are really old, some are 5+ years and keep getting flowers. I must be doing something right but I have no clue what it is.
    I'm definetely not giving them too much water :biggrin:
