Wow, these are just incredible!!! What a stunning collection of photographs, and thanks so much for posting this!! It is not easy to photograph orchids, but these photos are all incredible. Also BTW, I dont know how you can have 16 views of this and no comments.

Happy you enjoyed them Kat. The Orchidaceae family, still amazes me after all these years. Not all are beautiful, but all are fascinating to me.

FANTABULOUS collection of photographs Dan! Looks like they're not true but they are indeed! Am just wondering they surely cost a fortune. Thank you for sharing....

Most orchids now can be had for very little money when they are seedlings. There are a few that are quite expensive, but most near blooming orchids cost as much as an ordinary houseplant anymore. They are still one of my favourite family of plants. Glad you enjoyed the pictures
