Golden Bud Cluster

Cluster of golden and crimson orchid blossoms and buds

How can buds be more beautiful than blossoms? Like the pink orchids photographed earlier, these golden miniatures made me almost sorry that so many were in bloom…

Unfortunately, the light at Longwood Gardens was quite dim on the day I captured this, but since I habitually speed-bracket my flower photos, I was able to stack and merge three photos to capture a decent amount of detail.
