Orchids

My friends and I went to the Florida Botanical Gardens to check what was in bloom a couple weeks ago and, of course, to shoot what we found.

These Orchids were in the Orchid area and I was struck by the way they grow, all in a row on their stem. When I looked through the viewfinder in my camera, the first thing that came to mind was the pretty curve they formed and how they'd look with a diagonal composition. Well, I shot it this way, then shot the same flowers in several other angles, but this one is the one I like best.

Orchids are hard to identify, and I apologize for not knowing the variety. There are so many species within the Orchid family only an expert could tell them all apart.
