This Orchid is from the summer and the pictures have been sitting in the “To Be Used” folder on my hard drive. The Black and white is a monochrome shot from the D700. It just seems easier to me to have the camera do the conversion work then trying to change a color photo. My Nikon Coolpix 8400 has an electronic viewfinder and the view actually turns to b&w before you take the picture, which is helpful in composition. The D700 doesn’t do that and I wish it did.
Moth Orchids are easy to grow and come in a wide variety of colors and spots. I thought this one was nice since you don’t see to many with light spots.
Here is a link for the care of Phalaenopsis Orchids:
