    Cool Orchid Photo Puzzle Contest 1

    Complete this puzzle and then guess the name of the orchid. Hint: this is an image posted on the forum by one of our many photographers. Good luck!

    Contest Puzzle 1

    Click on the 'Help' link to learn how to rotate pieces and move pieces.

    The winner will be determined by the first person to correctly post :

    1. the name of the orchid and photographer,
    2. a link to the original thread where the photo exists on OrchidTalk,
    3. a photo (screen shot) of the completed puzzle showing the '100%' at the bottom of the completed puzzle (or post the pop-up dialogue box text instead of an image if you are not able to do a screen capture)

    - in their (your) reply to this post . Since the forum time-stamps all postings, the winner will be easy to sort out.

    Give it a go and reply to this thread to enter. This puzzle has only 35 pieces, so a winner will probably happen very quickly. If everyone likes it, we can do more. Have fun!

    (ps - only members who have posted at least two times in the forum can access the puzzle page. So, if you are a new member and want to play, post your introduction message ASAP! )

    Cheers,
    BD

    Very cool, Bruce!. If this takes off, you can always "up" the challenge rating by not providing the "image" or "image ghost"

    Any instrutions on how to do a "screen capture"?

    Ok... I didn't know how to get the screen shot, but I had to find out because of this puzzle...lol Also I had to do the puzzle twice because I lost it the first time while trying to figure the screen shot.
    Step one: hit the PrtScn on your keyboard (mine is on the right side of the keyboard above the "insert".
    Step two: go to start and hit run (if you are using vista just type run on the search) and in the box type MSPAINT
    Step three: Go to Edit on the new window and click "paste"
    Then just save the image and that's all.
    Hope that helps!!!
