Excellent, Richard. How do you get them ro stand still long enough for a focus stack? :D

In the first two the leaves look white. Is that just reflection/overexposure?

You have the most gorgeous and unusual orchids there "down under!" Focus-stacking really shows them off at their best, too. Well done!

Thank you Connie, and yes, we're very fortunate with the variety of native flora we have in our reserves!

Superb, as always coming from you.

Thank you Mike!

Beautiful images.

Thank you Walter!

I try to get to the reserves not long after day break when the breeze is usually calm. That is not always possible, or the weather is not playing the game, then its a matter of using things like umbrellas as a wind break. Although they don't always help either. If the breeze is too strong, at least I can get some single shots of the flowers.

The leaves are white, and just as well. These flowers are tiny. The white leaves assist with trying to locate them amongst the grass.

Superb images, Richard!

Thank you Karen!
