Good shot! You've captured this Ghost Orchid well, focus is spot on, and your DOF is nicely controlled too. About the only suggestion I have is that the lighting could be a little more uniform, the lower floret is perfectly exposed (although the underside is shaded), the top floret is marginally over - maybe a reflector (or a piece of white paper) placed underneath the flower would help. Well found, I haven't seen one of these in the wild yet myself - sadly they're probably extinct in the UK now... Anyway, a good shot, thanks for sharing :-D

C'est sympa ces fleurs style orchidées, le piqué est bon sur le
sujet mais j'aurais peut-être bougé à peine pour éviter d'avoir
les fleurs sur cette partie plus claire du fond. C'est marrant
on diarit des espèces de petites pieuvres!

beautiful orchid, great composition, TFS Ori
