    Beautiful shots! I have friends and an ex who are fanatical about orchids and cannot quite see it through why I am so fond of plants filled with the "husks" of insects. Go figure . . .

    The glossy ones need diffuse lighting to get a good exposure without washing out the highlights. Growing them can be easier than getting a photo that looks right.
