[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a saprophytic orchid, it doesn't have any leaves and lives of rotting plant materials in the shade of scrub. This one was especially tall reaching 70 cm. In Israel it is a rare and protected species. It was so shady that the only option was to use flash.

Hi Ori. this is a very good macro shot of the orchid. the detail and colours look great against the black back ground .nice POV. well done TFS.

Hi Ori,
This is a beautiful plant and a very nice capture of it.
I guess this is almost the end of orchids for this year...

Bonjour ori,
Sur ton image, la tige parait verte. C'est intéressant car je ne connais cette espèce qu'avec des tiges très foncées, pourpres respque noires.
Bon usage du flash, qui crée un contraste intéressant avec le fond.

Good pic and info.

Très interessante cette orchidée.
En France nous en avons une différente
Je la mettrai prochainement

Hello Ori,
Very fine capture of this beautiful saprophytic orchid. Sharp details and I like the colour. I wonder in what kind of environment it grows in Israel?
TFS and regards, Ulla

You managed the exposure well for the dark conditions. Nice accurate shades of color and excellent detail shown. Interesting plant.

Hi Ori,
What a nice composition. colors and focus excellent. Dark background against purple flowers is very good.
