    Default For you raging insomniacs, those 'ho-hum' orchid pics I warned you about

    Don't say I didn't give you enough advanced warning before boring you to tears with these flower pics from the East Lansing show. I would advise tying a pillow to your forehead so when you doze off, you don't hurt yourself as your head smacks into your keyboard..........zzzzzzzzzzz...........





    Notice how variable Ishpeming is. If contemplating one of these, you might be best off getting one already in bloom.




    Personally, I think this is one of the most gorgeous cyms I have ever seen


















    this one really was the screaming fire engine red it appears in this pic






    The color on this masdie is also quite accurate




    While the coral color on this little gem came out quite well, I was very disappointed with the pic overall -- just couldn't avoid the glare for whatever reason.




















    Saw a number of very richly colored besseae hybrids












    A truly impressive Tut specimen


    And what show would be complete without at least one Psycopsis?


    Now wakey, wakey *nudge, nudge* ... off to bed with you.

    My favorites are the Den spectabile and the Cym Splatters, but all are lovely. Thank you for sharing.

    I like how you mixed the clay orchid photos in with the real orchid photos. I wonder how many people will be fooled . I love the Paph. sangii-one of my favorite weird Paphs .

    A few always are. Question is, how many of such pictures can you spot and what gave them away?

    That paph sangii is so weird. I love it. Great pics Paul. Thanks for taking your camera to the orchid show!! (BTW - the clay orchids are cool too, but the buds don't ring true to me.)

    Cheers,

    A wonderful wake up to go with my morning coffee! I especially like the Vanda tricolor and the Dend spectible.
    Thinking the mounted paph/phrags dont look quite right. Texture and form are too uniform, the unopened buds are identical on three plants and there is no stake to hold them up like you would usually see.
