Moth Orchid

Moth Orchid. Nikon D200. AF-S Micro-Nikkor 105 mm f/2.8G ED-IF VR. ISO 200, 1/250 sec at f/38. With ring flash. Copyright © Joanne Mason 2011.

Here is another of the orchid images I’ve been working on. Moth Orchid is a popular name for the Phalaenopsis Orchid – Yesterday’s White Orchid was also a Phalaenopsis. This is a small flower, much smaller than yesterday’s large and majestic white orchid. Comparing the raw image, the final jpg, and the actual flower suggests that this image is an accurate rendition of the flower. The petals and sepals have this almost crystalline appearance.
