    Default Phrag. Olaf Gruss

    (pearcei 'Cloud' x besseae flavum 'Sulphur')

    This plant is so small and graceful. The leaves are about 3/4 inch across and 8 inches long. 2 spiking growths and 3 new growths.

    Another birthday orchid!

    You did great, I love the pink! I have to ask, what kind of camera did you get, the detail is magnificent.

    Thanks Traci and Louis!

    It is a Nikon Coolpix 5400. My 35mm film camera is a Nikon and I wanted something that I would be "semi" familiar with. This is my first foray into digital. I wanted this camera because you can still have the camera in full Manual mode so you can change the Aperture, Shutter Speed etc.
