    Very beautiful flowers Jack, daffodil yellow ! I have a nice yellow with red lip orchid who's full name I don't remember now that also ends in 'NN' and was registered by Newman's Nursery in Hawaii. Did you check the International Orchid Registry to see if your new hybrid was registered ?

    I can understand why you brought it home, Jack. I would have, too. I would be a hopeless case if I had an orchid nursery anywhere close to me.

    Nina, thanks for your comments. I did check and nothing is found in a search on this.
    Take care!!

    Karin, then you would not do well down here where I am, there are at least 2 dozen orchid nurseries in Broward and Dade county alone.

    An addict's paradise. My brother lives in central Florida and keeps telling me I need to retire and move to Florida. That won't happen.

    But think of all the fun you could have by visiting orchid nurseries! You just have to learn to saw no, so far that has not worked so well with me, hard to pass up a good orchid, but now I am looking for certain ones unless just like this one you just have to get it.

    It's just too hot and humid. I love being outdoors. I couldn't stand being cooped up next to the AC all day in the summer. The mountains of western New Mexico are heaven in the summer and not all that bad in the winter. Nothing like sipping coffee in front of a blazing fire watching the snow fall.

    Online orchid buying is working out just fine....too fine.

    Thanks Yew-Sung I have been working on getting better with my photography. Both of these photos I used the macro lens, I really am enjoying this macro lens and am already looking into another one at some point and time this year. I know you use your macro lens for your bug photos, any suggestions on the next macro lens, I currently have a 60mm.

    Nina, I would kind of agree with you it was so brutal last summer after 10am.

    A longer focal length than 60mm would allow you to work further away from the bugs, especially the shyer ones. Some bugs might not let you get close enough to photograph them with the 60mm. I use the Tamron SP 90mm with autofocus ( which I seldom use in macro work ) The new Tamron SP 90 with internal focussing and improved autofocus is a tremendous lens and from all reports is an excellent lens but cost twice as much as the older version. Nikon has its own 105mm and 200mm macro lens which are indecently expensive. Sigma too has a couple of very good macro lenses.
