    Default Orchids at the Atlanta Orchid House 2.6.13 -A Day Off from Mourning



    My daughter, Abby, insisted that the weather was too nice to stay inside and sort through mountains of stuff post-Phillip's death, so we went to the Atlanta Botanical Gardens yesterday and I took my D300 with the 105 fixed focus lens. There were too many orchids to photograph properly! The Orchid House was the most amazing I've seen yet - they're setting up for a "Surrealism"-themed orchid display, and I'll try to post a few Abby took that give a sense of the Dali-like world they're creating. In the meantime, here are various orchids in bloom, with a couple of tropicals mixed in for interest. I know what many of them are, but I know some of you like to id them.

    I have a few more, plus a couple from Abby's photos to post, but it's time to get to work. I hope you enjoy. It's been awhile since I've done a tour through the Gardens.

    Spectacular flowers and excellent photographs. Do you know what that interesting leaf is in that last series of photographs?
