Caribbean Flowers Series - Orchids

Nobody sees a flower, really, it is so small. We haven't time - Georgia O'Keefe

When you think of orchids, Georgia O'Keefe comes to mind. She is considered to be one of the greatest and well respected
twentieth century American painters. O'Keefe is known for her orchids and desert landscapes paintings particularly produced in New Mexico. Her compositions of the flower aroused the seductiveness of the female genitalia, although the name Orchid is derived from Greek meaning testicles.

In Trinidad and Tobago many
orchid enthusiasts take great pride with their plants. Rotten bark or the husk of a coconut tree are ideal to catch a plant.

Or, "missing the trees for the forest". Axiom for today. Love the 'bokeh'.
