    I should have guessed it was a Canon point-n-shoot - I have an a590 IS that takes great quality shots - and both of these will focus at close range (2"), which is far closer than my Nikon D80, which would require a macro lens.

    Nice job setting up the photos - composition and lighting is more than half the game.

    All open now:




    Whole plant (1 meter in height from the base of the plant to the tip of the spike). Definitely not one for the windowsill...

    It looks like a lovely white bird has landed on a flower and that's as poetic as i'm getting tonight.

    Who's a clever Paphioboy then ? My word it is quite stunning. I bought one once in flower, but lost it the first winter . These things which disappear below ground every year are so tricky - especially in a wet dripping humid greenhouse like mine . Put it up on a shelf out of the way, and maybe I even forget to look for it in the Spring , and it tries to grown and shrivels up for want of water ; keep it down on the bemch and its sure to get spray mist from the Vandas, and rot away.
    I bought another one, as a dormant tuber - the man said (!) and that never came up... After that I gave up .
    But clearly you have mastered the problems - congratulations. Well done. I envy you.
