W is for Wild

Wild orchid that is.  This shot was taken at the Queen Elizabeth II Botanical Park (Happy Silver Jubilee by the way).  At first I didn’t particularly care for the shot for this that and the other reasons but after stepping away and working on other photos I came back to this and saw that just like with everything else in life, it doesn’t have to be “picture perfect” in order to be beautiful.

F 6.3 – 1/200 – ISO 2000 – 115mm

    I dunno, Teri. I think these are picture perfect. One might argue that they’re being beyond their prime only adds to their beauty — a view that I find more agreeable with each passing birthday.

    Reading your entry sent me out to the back to see if my Lady’s Slippers have bloomed yet. They’re still a couple weeks away — I hope. I never really know until I see a bud forming. I’ll post pics if this is a blooming year. Fingers crossed.

    • Thank you, John! And I’m pulling for you, man, I’m pulling for you and your slippers. Please do not mention passing birthdays. I’m staring down the pipe at one coming next month. Then again, another birthday beats the alternative.
