    Sure you could, use the macro function on the camera. Makes life and identification so much easier! sowould a larger less fuzzy picture. Looks sort of like a dendrobium? hard to tell.

    The photo is too out of focus to make positive identification. Is it fragrant?

    I bought a Samsung ES28 for 99NZD, it comes with day/might function, minimum of 2gb data space without a card, and macro function. It is a great little camera. All the pictures you see on here from December last year are using that camera. I would check it out. You dont need a professional macro lens, like most people think, these little things have them built in.

    My cellphone can take macro shots, tho admittedly not too impressive but still decent. Most Point and Shoot camera has a macro setting so theres no need to buy those
    expensive dslr's and lenses... and if your not brand conscious then some can be had for < 100$ and besides well do anything to get a decent shot of our orchids blooms.
