It does indeed - nothing like finding a species for the first time

Most people would call the flower a botanical or insignificant. On the contrary, I call it beautiful. Once again Ron an incredible shot, love the miniscule dew drops on the flowers.

Thanks for the nice compliments, glengary. I, too, think it is very beautiful. We often have it that when we are down photographing smaller things like this, people ask what were doing, and when we tell them we're photographing orchids, they want to see, too, but you can hear the disappointment in their voices when they actually do take a look - "that's an orchid?"
