Portland Orchid Show 2008 Mar 29

Missed it last year. Besides these, I also pictures here from the show two years ago. Enjoyed this one much more for health reasons. In the show there are lots of artifacts amidst the orchids and it is often difficult to get a shot without including them. I've tried to minimize this, but sometimes it was just impossible. I know nothing about orchids except they're beautiful and highly varied. I didn't make the least attempt to capture a sense of scale. I was only interested in beauty and variety.

About half of these were from the competition exhibit, the others were for sale. Images from about 90 to 180 were the ones for sale. You will find most of the petal flaws in the ones for sale.
