Once again it amazes me how nature can create all sorts fascinating shapes, patterns and colors. Orchids are a perfect example of this wondrous feature of nature. They seem to look fake, almost made out of plastic yet they are completely natural. And another incredible thing about orchids is their oxymoronic state of being: such delicate and frail flowers yet they can grow out of almost anything! They are so incredible and such a joy to photograph. Enjoy!
