Photographing Sun Orchids


What Must Be In The Photo 2

The most important part to photograph is the the flower, paying particular attention to the middle, where column, post-anther lobe, cilla and other parts all help to aid in the identification.

Taking photos of the flower from the front as well as the side can also help to show the positions of the parts used in ID.
