Okay, y'all - here is a disorganized bunch of photos from this year's orchid show in Atlanta. The Show itself was a HUGE disappointment after last year's extravaganza - a few miltoniopsis, oncid. hybrids, and a few miscellaneous others. BUT the Conservatory itself was in fine form, with lots of new - and some old plants blooming. And I included some pictures of the conservation research lab here, where they propagate endangered orchid species. I really do know some of the orchid names, but I'm leaving for Florida tomorrow and I have to get my own orchids in shape for my vacation (as well as pack, etc - y'all know the drill), so I'm just going to post the photos and number them consecutively for this who want to play the identification game. The photos are not really up to snuff because we thought it would be too crowded to take our Nikons and tripods, so some of these are taken with my trusty point 'n shoot, and some are taken with my new iPhone. Not the highest quality, but interesting.
Hope y'all enjoy the "tour'!
(P.S. There are quite a few photos, but I know the 4-photo limit, so bear with me while I have to run a new thread every 4 photos. Bruce will fix it up, I'm sure.
And more photos:

And more photos, but I have to quit for now - I'll continue posting later. (This is rather time-consuming, although very fun.)
I'm sure you all had a great time. All great photos. I recognize quote a few. The nepenthes is beautiful.
Wonderful photos Maura!! Some lovely orchids and the nepenthes is amazing.
Great shots Maura. Thanks for sharing.
Beautiful orchids and Nepenthes. I especially like the Guarianthe skinneri and aurantica and also guatamalensis.
