    So lovely. I know my point and shoot tends to overcompensate when what I'm shooting is one color filling the picture. Either way, I just make adjustments on the computer to make the color more accurate. My 2 cents. Absolutely beautiful Vanda, and what a great spike for such a relatively small plant! Good growing!

    There you go again Geoff. I just love your little infos. Really appreciate this . And of course Yew Sung, even with this color it is still a beauty .

    Gorgeous! I recently bought one of these, but it hasn't reached it's first blooming just yet. I assume they bloom on rather small plants?

    It is indeed, almost impossible to photograph 'blue' vandas. Your plant is absolutely beautiful no matter what the actual color is. Good growing.

    It is stunning Yew . The color is very vibrant and intense at the same time. It's a gorgeous bloom , wish I could see it in person to see what you see that makes it even more special .
