An orchid at the Hawaii Tropical Botanical Garden:


For a photographer, one of the handy things about being married to a botanical fan is that when we travel, flowers are always involved. HTBG is particularly good in this regard, as it seems to have something in bloom no matter when you show up (at least, it’s been good for us the two times we’ve made it there). Just a few miles north of Hilo on the big island, it’s got a wonderful walking trail (some of it wheelchair accessible), and a wide variety of tropical plants.

FWIW, about all I did to this shot (out of the camera) was de-saturate the greens a bit so the flower would stand out a bit better.
