    Default RHS Orchid Show 2008, more pics

    As I promised a while ago, here are some more pics from the RHS show in London. Some of the shots are a bit out of focus, I was still getting used to the camera. I also apologise in advance at the lack of tags, and to those of you with dial up as this may take a while to download. Enjoy.

    Those are amazing displays.
    It must have been great being there in person.

    A beautiful show! The cymbidiums alone are worth the price of admission!

    That is a European native the Sombre Bee Orchid Ophrys fuscus. A bit of a misnomer IMHO

    I thought it was an Ophrys, but was not sure. The ones I have seen all look more like bees. I like the green and black color though!
