I can’t believe I actually did this, but I went back once again to the “orchids: A MOMENT” exhibit at the Smithsonian’s Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden. I don’t really have all that many pictures from this visit, but as I don’t have much else to work on except old captures, will continue this gallery for a little while longer. I hope people are not “orchided” out! I was a bit shocked this time because no botanist had come in to tend to the orchids, and there were at least three plants in very bad shape. Not so good for an exhibit like this.

So different! Hard to believe they're orchids! Love the way one is leaning toward the other, and the other is backing off!

These two are so different from a lot of the others. Looks to me like one is resisting the advances of the other :)
Neat shot V
