Glorious Orchid Specimens in 2013 Spring Show Competition


✿❀ Queensland Orchid International ❀✿

The Spring Show Has Begun in Earnest on 13th September!

The Queensland Orchid Society would like to welcome all of you to the show, and to hope that those who attended have had a pleasant time enjoying the opportunity to exhibit, view, learn about, sell or buy quality orchid specimens.

The following photos are a gift to SoundEagle from the friendly and generous Kerri Roland, a first-day visitor who admired and photographed the specimens in the afternoon with her new camera NIKON D5100. Kerri’s enthusiasm and appreciation of floral beauty are undeniable and admirable. We would like to thank Kerri for her visiting the show and sharing the photos, and we hope to see her at future meetings and shows.

Please note that each of the image files has subsequently undergone file size reduction, image enhancement (optimization) and labelling for the purpose of web presentation as follows.
