Wow!! Stan, your Orchid photos are truly one of a kind and I want to see more and more of them. #4818943

I'm so envious of you, Stan! The incredibly beautiful color of these Hawaiian orchids is not one I can recall seeing in Southern California!

The subdued lighting and black bg you've used fit the "mood" perfectly.
I will thoroughly enjoy seeing this lovely image again next month! #4818947
