Canada about 10years ago said: Beautiful catch Christine. Would love to see them in person. Do they grow wild?
Australia about 10years ago said: The orchids are pleased that some people liked them. It's funny, but not even bees or flies come to visit them. They are simply there for show, and they do provide that. - Happy Solstice and the coming of spring to all. :)
Nebraska about 10years ago said: Lovely Photo, Christine! You can almost feel the velvety texture of the petals. I can actually see a face in the central blossom. It seems to be sticking its tongue out as if to say, "I'm prettier than you are". Hmmm, you may be right about "pompous" :-)

Canada about 10years ago said: I fully agree with Betty.
Tehran about 10years ago said: Oh wow, very sensual. This is a great picture Christine, I love the texture and color. Well done!
