    Love that yellow colour. Would love to have this one since it seems to thrive in sub-tropical climes.

    Great blooms Shane and I think your photo is fine as is. Some of my orchid photos still look like 'A study in Blur'. Still if you ever want a orchid flower with at least three sets of petals back to back just let me take the picture. AL
