White orchid

Orchid : Phalaenopsis sps
This is one of the images from the first roll of film I shot on the 35mm SLR camera that I had just bought. I had bought the Nikon N60 and a set of zoom lenses for the tropical field biology trip to the Hawaiian Islands in December 1998. I was trying out the camera and getting used to controlling aperture and shutter. This orchid was shot in the greenhouse of the Botany Department at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. There was just about enough light to handhold the camera.

Another orchid
Same story as the above picture. I do have a bunch of slides of Bhutanese orchids, I just haven't gotten around to scanning them yet.

Veins of a large leaf
I forget what plant this is, but the leaf was as big as an umbrella. It was photographed in Kauii during my tropical field biology trip.
