    Cool Paph American Beauty In Bloom

    Bought this Paph American Beauty (Black Rook 'Grace' B/CSA x Black Buddha 'Ontario' HCC/AOS) in December of 2013, in bloom. Last year, it tried to bloom but I apparently kept it too dry at the wrong time and the bud was developing but failed.

    This year 2 growths are blooming. Very slow to open, so I hope they last a long time. Still have some lifting of the dorsals left yet. It seems that the one leading is waiting for the other to catch up.
    Back-lighting really sets it off beautifully! Lens hood in the wide shot!

    I am just now realizing how much image quality is lost down at 700 pixels.

    Thanks Yew!
    If not for your tip, I'd still be wearing out the last of the hair on my head!

    When/If the dorsal stands upright, as it should, then it is even cooler. It is a beaut of a complex hybrid! And I found it early in my orchid life.

    The usage of the 60mm macro and how to change the aperture. Nothing more than D5300 specific info.
