    Default MOS show. WARNING! -- Plethora of pics!

    Truth be told many of the pics didn't come out as well as I wanted -- whether the problem was me, the camera, or the lighting. But one works with what one has...

    1st pics of some displays:



















    Now some individual posies:





























    Sorry, Ron, didn't get the name on this one



    The satiny sheen on this one was fantastice but made getting a good pic difficult...

    That waterfall lipped Miltoniopsis in the first picture really caught my eye. :

    one more thing. Do you know what this plant is? I know it's some kind of Dend, but the parents seem to come for several Dend sections?

    Beautiful displays & blooms. And, even if you feel "many of the pics didn't turn out as well" as you wanted, believe me when I say they are wonderful!!!!! I keep going back and looking at them again and again.

    BTW, I have a possible suggestion for the mini-catt you didn't get the name of. It's very similar to my Sc. Tiny Titan, which just happens to be in bloom for me right now--the final bud just nicely opened this morning and I plan to photograph it shortly. (Actually, it is--just--visible in my diningroom display photo, but it's not very easy to make much out.) I will post it, in a separate thread, and you can see if you agree.

    Cheers,
    Rob

    P.S. I've now added the photos of my Tiny Titan. Here is the URL:

    Great photos. I got a kick out of the photo with the ATM in the background. Guess that got a workout!

    Looks like a huge, great show!! I love the Phrag caudatum (of course.. heh). And the BLC Goldenzelle 'Lemon Chiffon' reminds me that my seedlings that I have been growing out of flask are probably about ready to put up on OrchidBids. Now, all I need is some time. LOL!

    Thanks for the great photo tour, Paul.

    Cheers,
    BD
