This is another beautiful orchid I managed to shoot in France. the buds are just opening. It is ver similar to platanthera bifolia, only flowers earlier, and the stamen are not vertical but diagonal

Hallo Jeroen,
Persoonlijk zou ik het contrast wat verhoogd hebben, zodat de orchidee wat scherper tegen de achtergrond af steekt. Maar evenzogoed een mooie foto in goede scherpte. Goede vage achtergrond.

Hello Jeroen,
Not easy to capture white orchids. Great management of light with artistic background. A delicate species. Cheers,

Hi Mate, an expertly taken macro of this delicate orchid. Perfectly exposed that we can see the details on white parts so well.
TFS and have a nice night!

Ps. I added you amongst my fav. photographers:)

Hello Jeroen,
A fine portrait of the flowering stem of Plantanthera chlorantha. The DOF, sharpness and diffuse Bg make this a fine capture of a species that is not uncommon in the S. of Sweden.
Thanks and all the best in Gotland!

Hi Jeroen,

another excellent shoot of an Orchid.
Also that type should grow here but Ive not find it yet.
