Orchid Poetry

Orchids are so elegant . This is a close up of a wild orchid growing in a bog on the San Juan ridge, on Vancouver Island.
I believe it is a fragrant white rein orchid (Platanthera dilatata …hey, I checked here: E-Flora BC!)

I added some filter play, to give it a painterly look… and to camouflage – almost successfully – the  fact that one of the blossoms is out of focus. I have to work on my depth of field adjustments. Learning every day.
