    Default OrchidTalk Orchid Puzzle Contest

    Since I posted the last one in the morning, I thought I should post this one in the late evening so here it is....

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

    Contest Puzzle 2

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

    1. the correct 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 full puzzle screen. (learn to do a screen shot here) (thanks Margo!)

    - 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 is a bit more complex than the last. The pieces are not rotated, but are cut into many, many more shapes. There is also no 'ghost' image or preview image. (thanks to suggestions by Pavel ) Have fun!

    And to make sure everyone gets a fair go at solving the puzzle without knowing the answers, please use the Spoiler button when replying to the thread. The spoiler button puts your answer (the important parts) behind a button that has to be clicked to view. Like this:

    MY ANSWER HERE

    This button is found on the advanced reply next to the highlighters. It looks like this:

    Okay - enough with the rules - on with the contest! 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

    yeah, got the screen shot, but how do we post it within the spoiler? coz if we just manage the attachment, won't that just add it to the end of the post and not within the spoiler so ppl can have a go?

    After attaching the image, then click on the paper clip icon and insert the image into the spoiler code. It will look like this:

    [spoiler] [attach]your image[/attach] your link, the name of the orchid and the photographer [/spoiler]
