    Maura and I took a short afternoon trip to the Orchid Conservatory at the Atlanta Botanical Garden today. I have several pictures to post, but seem to remember there being a limit of four photo's at one time.

    I know the Paph.s from the Frag.s and the Cattleyas from the others, but identification is best left to you experts. I just had a good time taking pictures of some beautiful flowers

    Thanks Guys, I deleted part of this post because Maura told me that I put it in the wrong place. I will try to re-compose this post in the proper thread, so if you see it again, look for a few more pictures.

    Thanks,

    Phillip C

    Default A short visit to the Atlanta Botanical Gardens and the Orchid Conservatory

    Yesterday Maura and I took a short visit to the Orchid Conservatory at the Atl Bot. Gardens. I took my camera and tripod as it was a weekday afternoon and I didn't figure on getting in too many peoples way. As always, a trip to the Botanical Garden is good for your state of mind and this visit was all of that. Sometimes I think we should make it a point to go every day for our sanity, but alas, it may be too late to save that at this point.

    At any rate, we had a good relaxing time and I captured a few orchids with my camera. Mind you, I know the difference in Paph.s and Phrag.s, Cattleya's and other orchids, but I will leave the identification to those of you who know much more than I do. I mainly just enjoy the pretty flowers and getting a good shot of them when I can.

    By the way, I started this thread somewhere else and tried to delete it as Maura told me that I had posted in the wrong forum. I managed to get one of the posts deleted, but not the other one. Perhaps Bruce can find it and fully delete it.

    We only had a couple of hours to visit, but we could spend days exploring there. The orchids are constantly changing, so you never know what you'll find.

    Thank you Patty, I enjoy it, but am merely an average photographer. I appreciate the compliment.

    Here are a few more from the Conservatory. Some parts are warm and humid, but that feels good on a chilly afternoon like yesterday in Atlanta
