I have local orchids which may be regarded by some as common but I still get thanked for posting them on youtube by people who don't have access to them.

PS There's nothing wrong with your photography

An Early Purple Orchid.

That's the nicest thing anyone has said to me about my photography and flowers I've found!

I like those early purples. Where did you find them?
