    Which of your cameras/lenses did you use? Can i ask what settings?
    Thanks Maura. I used the Nikon D200 with the Tamron SP90 macro lens. As I took this pictures in the orchid house with a slight breeze blowing movement was always going to be a problem, so I had to use flash at the highest synchro speed of 1/200. To prevent flat on-camera lighting I use off-camera flash with my Nikon SB 600 and the on-camera flash as the trigger set at 1/64 power - this set-up gives quite satisfactory modelling light and allows for some details in the background (the leaves). Other technical details : ASA 200: f22 (3 stops over the ambient light). Oh yes, the SB 600 had a diffuser on to give softer light.

    Thanks everyone for looking in and for the nice compliments. Unfortunately the flowers are not long-lasting - 10 to 14 days only, unlike the other Pedilonium section Den bracteosum whose flowers are still looking good after 2 and a half months.

    @ Jason, I'll try to take a picture of the plant but the flowers have all withered.

    Thanks Ron. I believe this plant is from the Philippines.

    Thanks for the info, Yew. That sounds like quite a setup. Phillip and I have wanted an off-camera flash for a long time, but I think it's going to have to wait. And he's coveting a 105mm macro. It's great to live vicariously through you!
