    Default Oberonia

    Cheers,

    This oberonia is one of my first orchids and now its in bloom again, this is the
    first time i've posted a photo of it since the flowers are so tiny and very difficult
    to take a photo of.

    The first photo is of the whole spike and the 2nd is the closeup.

    Hope someone can give me the name. thanks

    Nice one. Glad you managed to get a pic....some of these minis are so tough with point-and-shoot cameras.

    Very nice! Yeah, photographing it is a bitch. Nice close-up, Randy.
    I took a photo of mine(diff. species) last week but it didn't turn out that good...

    I agree with Derek that this species is Oberonia iridifolia. Very nice pictures too.

    decoy and jim, thanks for the ID.

    Yes its very difficult to photograph it, it sways with the slightest breeze. I have tried
    doing a lot with the camera and ended up cropping the image to get the desired output.

    hi randy, almost missed this post,
    finally i get to see your oberonia iridifolia and what a beauty she is!
    cropping pix is also the only for me, maybe you can try to darken the background a bit more and thats it!
    btw, how many blooms on this one?lol
