An Orchid is a flower...

Like the lyrics of the song.

When we stayed at the Polynesian Resort at Disney World, the welcome center has a large floral garden with waterfalls that mimics a rain forest setting.

I have never seen so many different Orchids in one setting.  many were far enough away that I used my telephoto lens to bring up a close view.

Now, I am still deleting the extra photo's and will share more as time goes on.

Orchids are beautiful and fun to grow. We have many here and even more down in Mexico. It's fascinating to see them in the wild growing out of trees.

One year I was vacationing at Kona, Hawaii.  I remember lounging around the swimming pool doing absolutely nothing but soaking in heat on a February day.  Not far from where I was lounging, were about 4 older guys from Minnesota.  They were sitting at a table, playing cards and giggling.  I will never forget the scene as they enjoyed warming their bones, away from a Minnesota winter.  And there was the plethora of orchids, and other flowers as their backdrop.

I can see what you mean when you say you honed your skills.  This one really captures just the beauty of this flower.
