Stinky ?

Hi Bernabu,
This beauty looks like it might be one of the smelly (bad) ones, is it.
Either way its a good looking flower.



Thanks for your comments. This species has no good or bad scent. I think that it just attracts the insect with vivid markings, or perhaps some other hidden attraction.


getting better!

Bernard....they just keep getting better!

pawpaw, I am not sure if this is one of my images, I know it sounds silly, but I have exchanged images ( for quite a few years) with a good friend who is also a bulbo enthusiast. He has all my images and I his. I have used an Olympus 4040 with a seperate macro lense for several years and of course I have a decent tripod. Previously, I used 35mm film without much success, so digital camera's have been a godsend.


This one caught me eye

The leopard pattern caught my eyes. Excellent photo Bern.

Drop dead gorgeous! One day,

Drop dead gorgeous! One day, maybe one day I will flower something as beautiful, hope they have orchids in Heaven!!!!!!
