This is the latest of our weekly travel photo series, inspired by #FriFotos on Twitter.
This week’s #FriFoto theme is FLOWERS. Orchids are my favorite type of flower – not only because they are exotic, but because there are so many different varieties and bizarre shapes. The photo above, of a moth orchid, was taken at the Philadelphia Flower Show, an annual event drawing thousands of visitors. The moth orchid is fairly common – even so, it’s very vibrant and its structure produces some very nice details, especially for close-up photography.
