This beautiful orchid was growing in my sister’s garden.
We thought it looked pretty amazing, but after viewing the fine details through the eye of the macro lens we were even more impressed.
I’m still researching to find the name of this little gem. I was thinking it was a native Australian orchid but the research suggests otherwise.
Thanks to my sister for showing me this flower & also for the black tray used as a background.
Now identified as Bletilla striata , the China pink ground orchid thanks to Greg.
