Orchid update

The beautiful orchid given to me a few weeks ago in memory of my late brother Muz is still going really strongly. The colours are very vivid still and maybe some of the rain we've had recently has helped.

These images were taken with my new camera and an older 17-85mm lens, playing around with exposure settings and the macro manual focus.

great pic,

just be careful keeping it outdoors. orchids flourish with humid, warm climate therefore better to keep in indoors on the eastern part of your house if you want your blooms to last.
