    Default Finally - My Vinicolor Paph is Open!!!!

    This is Paph. Rubyweb x Paph. Hilo Red Shift. I've only been waiting an endless 2 months or so for it to raise its head and uncurl those side petals. I don't think it's as dark as Paph Vinings Noir 'Henry's Turn', HCC/AOS, but the size, color, shape, and markings are pretty nice. Yay!!!! I think it'll be going to judging weekend after next.

    By the way, the difference in the color of the backgrounds is due to the flash used on the first photo - no flash on the 2nd. Both shots get the bloom clor right though, which is always nice. (my D80 this time - not the Canon G11)
