    Tom -

    I can't help but appreciate the photography as well as this beautiful Paph villosum. If you have a chance, I'd love to know what your photo techniques are. I collect mostly paphs these days, but have only hybrids and one species. I'd like to try a fairrieanum, or maybe a callosum or lawrenceanum, but the species really intimidate me. My only one is a delenatii and it's at least 3 or 4 years away from blooming - if it lives that long....

    I'm working on patience, which I can tell you have in abundance.

    Maura
