    Maura, I'm using Canon 100 mm Macro IS lens on Canon 5D Mark II.
    I've bought this plant (just bulbs, no leaves) as Bletilla ochracea, so I was very suprised seeing the flowers. In deed very beautiful small flowers. My plant look like a typical earth orchid, but in the nature is growing as an epiphyte. The foliage is same as an Bletilla or an Spathoglottis.

    Thank you, Mietek; I am always eager to learn about the photography equipment and techniques of members who have particularly excellent work. I am hoping one day for a 100mm macro lens for my Nikon (my husband has a 60mm lens already) - for that matter, I'm hoping to trade up to a better D-series camera body - maybe for Christmas! You must be very good with your macro lens in all sorts of areas - looking forward to seeing more of your photos!

    Congratulation!

    I have some the same but I can't manage to have photo of this species (it just bloomed last month). First look at plant I thought that is Eulophia but when it flower it ... different.

    Canh, you right it looks more like an Eulophia.

    Maura, to take pictures of flowers is a 60 mm macro as good as 100 mm macro lens. The advantage of 100 mm macro is just the close distance to the object. It's important when you wont to take pictures of some insect and don't won't to scare them. Flowers can't run away.

    Or woman! Thanks for the input, Mietek - I really am challenged quite enough with what I have - it's just that the desire for better and better work product makes me want all kinds of fun equipment.
