Stanhopea oculata

Stanhopea oculata up close. This image was captured with a fix 60mm macro lens. The orchid is quite a challenge. Despite opening up the depth of field there are still aspects in the foreground out of focus… and there is just too much clutter behind.  This is a lesson on how not to take a flower image… ah well, back to the drawing board… where is that user manual.
(Canon 7D; f/1o; 1/13sec; ISO-640; 60mm)
