A few orchids

Took off last Friday and visited the orchid show and then went chasing eagles and what not. It was a great day, sunny and warm. I'll put up some birds later. These were all the Sigma 150mm macro and Olympus E510.

Re: A few orchids

Very nice group of pictures and I really like the third. I have always liked orchids they have such fascinating flower structures.

Re: A few orchids

Thank you everyone. I'm happier with the Sigma the more I use it. It was almost too long for the orchid show, but in the garden it will be just about right. That's rather flattering Nancy. I'm not sure it's possible to be as genuinely original as she was in everything she did, including her lifestyle.

Re: A few orchids

Thank you Dutchie. The Sigma does flowers well. It will be a contest between it and my 50mm come spring. It may end up the 50 for flowers and the 150 for bugs. I guess I need another body. Hmmm.

Re: A few orchids

Thank you Kevin. I can see the sci-fi analogy. There is something other-worldly about some varieties.
