I spent an hour this morning photographing orchids at the 2014 Manitoba Orchid Society Show and Sale. The show is currently held at the Assiniboine Park Conservatory from Friday March 21 to Sunday March 23 (9:00 AM to 4:30 PM). There are plenty of interesting flowers to view. This is a great way to welcome SPRING!

Plants of all types proved to be a major interest in university and this continued as I became involved in photography. Often, the finest 'portraits' are those that display a clean, out-of-focus background. The three orchids shown are (from left to right) the small round-leaved orchid (southeastern MB), the small purple-fringed orchid (Briar Island, NS) and the rose pogonia (southern MB).
