The complicated structure of these blossoms is fascinating to me. I don't think I have ever spent so much time investigating one plant.

@Arnd: Thanks, Arnd! There were so many changes in aspect as I moved the plant pot around and then moved around it with the camera.

The orchid makes a fine subject. I like this interpretation that comes off as a beautiful abstract. Excellent work.
