Hello, everyone,

Our orchids are starting to bloom, so I've been snapping pics. I'd love some comments, suggestions, etc. Thanks!

Thanks, Mark. Luckily, we have lots in bloom at the moment, so I'll have plenty of subject matter to practice on for the next few months!

I think orchids are beautiful, one of the most unique looking flowers. The shapes vary so much!

Great captures, do you "collect" them or are you just a big fan of them?

Wow, really lovely, but I couldn't recognize they were orchids! :P

We have over 100 different orchids in our collection at the moment - they're quite addictive! There are actually about 22,000 different species, and countless more hybrids, and the variety is astounding.

I'll try to share our collection as they bloom. Thanks for looking!
