[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note [French]
Jumellea recta, prise aujourd'hui au Colorado sur un rempart. La fleur mesure environ 3 à 4 cm. Cette orchidée est une espèce robuste, vivant sur les rocher (le cas ici) ou sur la base des troncs en sous-bois clairs, entre 500m (ici 700m) et 1200m, dans la côte sous le vent (est).
La fleur se trouvant sur un rempart et sous le vent, la séance photo est plus ardue. Impossibilité d'utiliser ni même d'emmener un trépied, et gérer le vent qui transforme la fleur en vibrato...

Exquisite flower! Beautiful picture. TFS! Ishi

Hi Fred

it was quite difficult to decide on which orhid to critque. I love orchids myself and have been known to spend the entire day finding one particular orchid to photograph.

They can be very difficult to photograph espcially when there is even a slight breeze and without a tripod as well you have done very well here. Slightly more DOF would have been nice but I can see from your photo info that you have done everything you can to get a better DOF without a tripod.

TFS and Happy New Year

Hello Fred,
Beautiful flower. Very nice, well composed picture. TFS.
