Orchid photography often eludes me,
until I caught a wink from an open door in my studio this morning. I was looking for my journal, but instead grabbed my camera and shot the reflection of our dining table.
They shake (we think they're laughing) as we eat dinner.
They've all bloomed out to their tips now.
And we've enjoyed them from all angles for two and a half months so far.
The butterfly is perfuming
It's wings in the scent
Of the orchid.

Have a lovely day!
