[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
My wife's hanging orchids are starting to flower now and this yellow orchid flower was tempting me to photograph it as it has been a while since I posted a "macro" type image. The late evening light was casting a lovely diffused light on the delicate petals. I used my macro 3:1 ratio zoom at 210mm to get close to the petals with the 50-500mm lens. It gives me a decent macro magnification and 60cm minimum working distance. I was tempted to use the extension tubes here but thought the while flower will look more interesting and your comments and suggestions are always welcome. Thanks for viewing.
