Tiger stripes

Tiger stripes

Naturally, every time we visit the Hirshhorn Museum for whatever reason, I have to see what’s new in the “orchids: A MOMENT” exhibit. Perhaps the Smithsonian really is going to display all 8,000 varieties in their collection over the four months of the exhibition because every time I stop in there, I’m amazed at all the new specimens on view.

I think these were my favorites that day!

Major variation on the theme of 'orchid' is remarkable and seem endless.
