'Orchids! A Cultural Odyssey' and other flowers

A spectacular exhibit of orchids from around the world at the US Botanic Garden. I ended up visiting it four times altogether; some images I like, some not so much, but I find the flowers fascinating. Page 2 is just a collection of various flower images I've taken over the years; NEWEST IMAGES ARE AT THE END.
