    You ought to see the plants who's pics didn't turn out. Gongora (several amazing looking types of these dragon orchids), Pleurotallis, Masdevallia, Resptrepia, Porroglossum, etc. Without a tripod photoing the microscopic but extremely bizzare looking Pleurothallid alliance orchids I like so much didn't work at all. Merely the rotation of the earth is enough to cause their blooms to vibrate and go out of focus.... It doesn't help many of them such as Dracula bloom upside down or hang upside down and there's no where for me to lay on my back in the aisle to shoot up at the table to get their wild shaped blooms.
    It's always what you couldn't get that eats at you (well me anyway)!

    Great photos man, really amazing to see some of the rarer orchid blooms. Honestly your photos are outstanding in light of your "restrictions".

    thx Zac
