    Default Two intensely colored and fragrant species

    I know, I have posted plants of the same species before, but these two are currently with the most intense colors and fragrance for their species.
    Also I have a new image hosting site, free, with tons of capacity.
    Is it better this way, to click on the thumbnail photos to see the bigger size, or have them all the original size?

    They are beautiful. I prefer the original size photographs to the thumbnails...less clicking, lol!

    Cheers!

    I'm with BD! Less clicking, and each gets its full measure of attention. Which your gorgeous shots certainly deserve!

    I laughed when I looked at the closeup of your Vanda lamellata - it looks like a funky Phal equestris!

    Either way works for me--just so you keep posting them! :-) I really, really like the pics where the whole plant can be seen, like the last shot--so elegant.

    They are all wonderful, Nelson. I like to see the whole plant too, but like the closeups as well. I just like all your pictures, and all your plants!!

    You are right McJulie the Vanda Lamelatta, though beautiful, looks like a Phal in a Halloween Costume. Great shots, Nelson.

    Excellent piccies.
    It would be very nice to have more room to grow some more Vandacious plants.
    Not really bothered 1 way or the other about format of piccies.
