Utopia Park is a wonderful place in Israel. In this park you will see thousands of orchids, carnivorous plants, exotic tropical plants but also birds, parrots, peacocks, fish and some other little animals as sheep's or rabbits. Outside, your children will enjoy the playground, the maze hill or the Butterfly garden.

The park is also a garden Center. Utopia’s garden center is a national garden center featuring orchids, carnivorous plants, cacti, & a huge variety of tropical plants.

Please have a look more information and more shots here.

Hi Alex!!!
I must say, that I really like the original version of this shot. It is a bit softer than this one here. It is a matter of personal taste which one you like.
A lovely shot of a beautiful flower indeed!!!

Cheers, Anneke

A lovely shot indeed! :-) orchids are such pretty flowers.
i guess i like the original version a little bit more, this one
somehow is too sharp, maybe try a third version which lies in the middle of both.

Utopia Park just made it to the top of my list of place to visit when i am in Israel beginning of november.
best wishes & take care, thor.
