Delicately tinted

A few images from an exhibit titled “orchids: A MOMENT” at the Smithsonian’s Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, which I slipped away from work to see. It was fairly small, arranged on an interior wall, and most of the orchids were like 6 feet above my head, but I was keen on using my newly rediscovered old 105mm lens, so managed to photograph some plants that were more on my level.

Focus on the heart, posted earlier:

Pas facile de révéler la beauté d'orchidées blanches sur un fond pâle, un très beau rendu et de superbes détails! V

In this color they look so fragile and almost celestial.

As much as I like the bold colours in some orchids, the subtle colours here are lovely.

Beautiful indeed, it reminds me of the Orchid Jungle down in Miami (Florida)
