How nice that you ID each posted bloom.
When I go to an orchid show, I'm just glad I can take a decent photo, as these days everybody has their phone and is lined up to take photos, although, (thank goodness) the mono-pod and tripod people have to go 2 hours before it opens to the general public.
Our northern shows, run from late September to early February.
Thanks for posting your lovely photos.

Inga, I like to get the names right, just started on working through the rubbish written on some 150 Benching Cards.
Here are two more pics. Not up to the standard of Charles B photos but the lighting in Shopping centres is very poor.
Thanks for the comments.

Wow, love those Dens! The Orange Gem is breathtaking. Great pics, Arthur.
