Fascination of Orchids 2007

A note to orchid experts: Feel free to click on a photo of your choice and leave a comment identifying the flower or anything else you may know. Thanks, Ken

JUst added a couple of dozen photos I took on day 3 (Sunday, February 11, 2007). These were all taken without flash at high ISO. I am pleased with the results. Comments most welcome.

Now over 400 photos up. Those of you with dialup may find loading quite slow. However DSL and Cable users should find loading quite swift. According to the popularity of each photo I will likely be deleted the less popular photos. Clicking on a photo will reveal equipment, date, location and camera settings. To keep interest in this gallery I will be randomizing the photos a few times a day in order to reveal a different theme photo.

Held at Orange County Fairgrounds from Friday February 9 to Sunday February 11. Fascination of Orchids is an Annual event and is one of the larger shows and sales of the year. I am no Orchid expert but I picked up some literature and I will make an attempt to identify some of these. At least the major family they are in.

These photos were taken on Friday February 9, 2007 and Saturday February 10, 2007. II will be going again on Sunday for more shots. Bookmark and stay tuned. Your comments always welcome
