red orchid

I have a soft spot for show-off flowers. Anything that’s big, bright, bold, has a unique shape or coloring or smell…they all win my heart.

Orchids definitely are show-offs, and they make great photographic subjects as well. Yesterday’s image (“I’m Fanatical About the Botanical,” 07.22.14) featured a grouping of five orchid blossoms, and today’s post features just a single bloom dangling from the tip of a gracefully curving stalk.

And of course any flower that’s red automatically falls into the show-off category. Bees aren’t the only ones drawn to this color!

So there was no way I could pass up this baby, was there?
