Hi Joey,
There must be quite some tunes coming from your plce as the pictures are spot on, particually the ladies slipper ones.

Cheers Mark

Wow I really like these photos of the inner parts of the orchid Joey, especially of the third set from the bottom with whisker like appendages. Reminds me of the whiskers/feelers of oriental dragon pictures. Wonderful quality of light in many of the pictures and the b&w is stunning.
