I read about an orchid show that was going to happen last weekend and I thought I might get some good photos so I stopped by. Wow, did that ever turn into a challenge. The show was in a big green house building that was dark inside. Add to that, the air conditioning wasn't working so they had fans blowing all around which of course made all the flowers move with the breeze. I took some 60 photos and only about 10 survived the editing process. The orchid above was my favorite. I just love the unusual look of it.
The small ones above were very pretty as were the pink, prize-winning one to the left.
These enormous blooms surprised me. I don't think I've seen any big ones like this before. Of course the flowers came in all sizes from these that were about 4 to 5 inches across to teeny-tiny ones, smaller than my pinky finger tip. The crowd there was interesting too. There were some real die-hard enthusiasts among the viewers.
