Slipper Orchids

We went to see the orchid show at the New York Botanical Gardens in the Bronx on February 26, 2022. Here is the first set of 5 posts. I was able to modify the backgrounds in Lightroom by using the the new select subject masking which allowed me to change the colors and blur to suit my taste.

    I so enjoyed this marvelous gallery of elegant slipper orchids, Sherry. It is such a unique flower and you did a great job of capturing all the different angles, beautiful light, intimate details. My favorite is #7, reminds me of a long-winged bird in flight.

    These certainly are flashier than our native orchids. We have Ladies Slippers, but I’ve yet to find one in the wild.

      They planted them in Central Park. Unfortunately, people dug them up.
