Musk Orchid

Posted by

June is our best month here in England for many orchid species. This little rarity is called Musk Orchid. It is miniscule, and really hard to find in the few sites where it grows.

I can see how it would be hard to spot. I like the angle that you chose, it accentuates the subject and provides an interesting background.

I like the intensity of this and the shallow plane of focus . . a small image size like this can be very effective.
