Scented Sun Orchid
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|One of the most beautiful terrestrial orchids of the South-West of Western Australia. The Scented Sun Orchid (Thelymitra macrophylla) is a common orchid with blue, pink or light purple (as here) flowers. The stalk can be 1 foot tall, with up to 20 flowers. |
This is one of my preferred spring flowers. This year, there are dozen of them flowering on my block, probably because of higher than average winter and spring rainfall. I have never seen so many of them before. It opens its flowers on sunny days and brings a smile to all that see them.
Hand-held. Aperture-priority, +1 Exposure compensation. Curves and sharpened in Canon DPP.

What an attractive orchid with beautiful purple petals. I really like the vertical framing you chose. The DOF is a little shallow, but still a beautiful image.
a very nice portrait of this little purple orchid.
have a nice day
PS: I have posted the same one on TN some years ago... not sure if its really the same?
perhaps you would like to have a look?
