Taken in Michigan's Eastern Upper Peninsula.  We are fortunate to have over 50 species of orchids in our area, with many a short walk from home.  These are everywhere.  Had to time the wind blowing at its least for this image.

Neat group of orchids, nicely captured. Wish I had that many orchid species in my area!

Nice looking orchids, like the lighting, wind and orchid photos generally don't mix

A grand sight to see - winds always an issue for floral/macro lol

But I do like the stopped down look - nice shot

All the best

What haven't you got in your amazing locality! Lucky you, and no one better to make the most of the variety! A lovely collection of these beauties, they always make me think of chinese lanterns.
