Another shot from our orchid adventure at the South Texas Botanical Gardens in Corpus Christi last November - over 2000 orchids, most in bloom! A wonderful walking trail, a bird siting area and besides a greenhouse filled with orchids, many other outside blooming plants along the trail, as well. A good place to "poke around"!

A masterpiece of captured light. An exceptional photo from the black background to the golden spots of flower; amazing in composition and well seen with the streaks of shadow and light. Way to poke around, Valarie.
