008/365


Following on with a flower theme, image 008 is of an Autumn Ladies Tresses orchid.   The subject was backlit by the sun with the background in shade.  I used a small gold reflector to bounce some light back on to the flower, giving this very contrasty image.

Autumn Ladies Tresses, Spiranthes spiralis, Malvern Hills, Worcestershire, August, 2010.
