Nice image, Matty - splendid background - impressionistic.
We were photographing O. araneola this morning - diminutive.

Beautiful portrait of this orchid, apt the vertical format that follows the trend of the stem
and the beautiful background, which in the upper part reminds me of a northern lights.

I love this! One of your best! The beautiful soft multi-colors and the isolated bloom really pops. A must to view on d/b. Could view this all day long

This one almost looks like there is an impressionistic painting in the background. Great colors and a lovely mood....very soothing to look at.

For the first time I think your stunningly beautiful background has outclassed the lovely orchid! What a gorgeous image, Matty!
