    Default a visit to the farm series5

    It was so hard to take photos on a very windy day. Unless perhaps I get to study how the camera works in a formal classroom manner, rather than in a trial and error method that I have used for these past several years.
    Plus, some of the blooms were way out of their prime. The schilleriana for example had more than 50 blooms open last week.



    The white blooms in the background are those of Dendrobium auriculatum.

    It is difficult with wind, I am surprised any pics turned out. The faster the shutter speed the better with a windy situation.

    I can almost smell the anosmum from here.I just love the fragrance of this species. I have one and an alba in my collection.

    The phalaenopsis schilleriana is amazing. I bet it was stunning in person.
