Doug Beezley Photography | Georgia | Atlanta Botanical Garden - Fuqua Orchid Center

The Dorothy C. Fuqua Orchid Center in the Atlanta Botanical Garden displays the largest permanent collection of orchids in the US with over 10,000 specimens. It's a great place to spend a winter day with a camera - or without. Photography at a place like the Fuqua Orchid Center usually centers around "macro-photography" or shooting close up and personal with a lens designed to do just that. And, generally, I don't particularly care for macro and I am challenged to do it in an acceptable fashion. I hope I did it well enough for you to enjoy my "take" on "The Orchids of Fuqua Center".

Thanks to Ken Nitschke of Michigan for identifying the particular species. He covered up for some carelessness in not recording what I was shooting - all the orchids were labeled; I just didn't record the information.
