I will post some orchids in the next days. Maybe you want join the orchid challenge too?!
I photographed this orchid in the Herrenhausen Gardens in Hannover (capital of the German state Lower Saxony) in October 2009. The Berggarten with its hothouse for orchids is famous. The orchid hothouses presents the largest European exhibition. There are always 500-800 blooming orchids – which are part of a gigantic collection: 25.000 orchids!
