I went back to the exhibit titled “orchids: A MOMENT” at the Smithsonian’s Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, as the notice advertising it said the exhibits would be changed periodically, and so they were, at least some of them. Such a beautiful display! I only wish more of it was accessible, but since it’s arranged on a big wall, many of the plants were far too high to photograph.

Wow, these are gorgeous. It's so much easier to capture them on this exhibition then in the wild.

Very bright and colorful. I could see it on fabric for tropical attire.

These orchids are so gorgeous and the word 'cheery' came to mind even before I saw your caption. Beautiful shot. V
