For the next several days I will be posting images I took at Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, PA. Their orchid room is amazing featuring probably 100 varieties.

Wonderful colors and subject. I think your camera struggled a bit with focusing, but it definitely loved the striped portion. If you don't mind, I might suggest shooting from just a tad more distance and then cropping off anything extraneous if necessary. ♥
