When in Singapore we visited the Singapore Botanic Gardens. They were very nice, and the highlight was the National Orchid Gallery. The orchid is the national flower of Singapore. Here are some specimens. Enjoy!

These orchids are stunning. Such rich colors. Such variety. For example, the third one (white, spindly) is so unique and not like the others. Your photography is so good. Thank you.

Wow!! Lots of orchids! Glad you visited there and had fun. I think I read about the botanic gardens there somewhere. Thanks for posting all the pics!

These orchids and photos are stunning, Josh! (Oh, I see that’s the same word Clara used. Great minds think alike about great photos!) Thank you so much for relaying them to us so we can see what you’re seeing. Love it! XOXOX

I have a favorite (that white one!) and then four runners-up that are equally striking to me. It’s amazing how *many* different kinds of orchids there are and even how many different patterns in just one of them. And to think of all the patterns that are, then, further inside where only a microscope can see. Mind boggling. I’m soooo grateful this world has color and design and variety–limitless creativity and art! And that we get to see some of it through the lens of *your* camera! XOXOX

My favorite is the white one, too. So delicate and unique and beautiful. But, all of them are luscious. So, on these, how far away from the blooms would you say the end of your lens is? Or am I supposed to be able to tell that from the photo info?

No I don’t think you could tell from the EXIF. Just that my focal length is 48mm. I would say I was normally about a foot away when taking those.
