Orchid Trio

Sheryl got a very cool looking orchid while we were in California last year. We managed to get it home safely and it’s starting to bloom, for the first time since it arrived in Kansas.

Having been in a bit of a photographic slump I decided to see if I could get anything going with these flowers.

I ended up with 3 shots I’m pretty happy with. Two were taken with my always on the camera 24-105 and the more close-up of the three was taken with my 100mm macro. All handheld, all lit with flash. (You can click on any of the images to see a larger version.)
