Default Tolumnia Maliwan bloom photo

Experimenting with camera (an Olympus E-510 digital SLR) and tripod to get close up of one of my Tolumnias in bloom right now, a Tolumnia Maliwan.

I love these little orchids. Had to repot them into a lighter mixture of 50% medium bark and 50% perlite to try to keep the roots happy (keep them from rotting).
