    Default trichoglottis latisepala, philippines

    hi,

    this plant is way to big (1 mtr long pendulous canes) for those cute lil flowers, but makes it up with numbers.
    they usually form up clusters, remind me of old fashioned "candle holders", and somehow 1 bloom mutated into 1, which was better to take an almost decent shot.
    this plant was very common in the good old days in manila and often grown for their shiny waxy foliage.

    sorry, dont wanna post a pix of the whole plant, aint so pretty now since weeks of dry heat.

    cheers,

    hi nelson,
    thanks!

    lol, i knew it was coming..., thing is i finally figured out how to trick my cam into focus when it comes to the tiny ones, plus it helps seeing the actual size of the blooms.

    disadvantage, keep my fingernails clean!

    @randy,
    i knew, you would have a hard time, took me also a few days just to get these shots.
    but its ok, just post the whole plant, that part im lacking.

    To focus, make a small hole int the center of a piece of paper that can cover the lens of your camera. Try to focus on your object through the small hole. When you are just about to click, quickly remove the paper so the lens will not autofocus.

    Do not give time to the camera lens to autofocus.

    That was a problem with my Olympus, currently disabled. It liked to focus on the leaves instead of the blooms, so I was often tricking the poor cam.

    Cute little ones, Ron. You must have a steady hand to hold the camera, take a photo, and point to the bloom all at the same time.

    Cheers,

    gotcha nelson, will try that next time, thanks.
    oh, another thing i noticed, if my fingertips are in the pix, it blackens automatically the background, i dont know why but it certainly helps.

    @bruce,
    thanks, yes the tiny ones are really hard sometimes, i have no easy access to em (mounted) plus wind and light factors...thats why i need days and tons of shots, lol.
