Glad you are all screwed up. (teehee) Hope the healing progresses quickly
and that more flowers like these last two will follow soon !!

Nice close-up, almost intimate, portrait of this beauty. With this magnification the perception of 3rd dimension almost disappears so I think it might be interesting to try some BW conversions for more abstract look.
I'm glad to hear will now be only better.

This orchid's 'throat' looks very healthy too! Great capture.

Love this pink orchid! Glad to hear the surgery is behind you. Let's see, you need a sherpa, a remote shutter release, some flowers, and....... you're set to go!

Such brilliant colors, almost looks like tie-dye. The back-lighting makes for an unusual effect.
I'm glad your surgery was successful. Hopefully your recovery won't be too long so you can get back to presenting making your wonderful flower images.

Such a wonderfully intimate shot of the orchid. Love the symmetry...reminds me of a kaleidoscope.
