Lovely to see this ophrys again. I remember well when I saw it for the first time in Andalucia and was amazed at its blue colour.
Excellent capture showing very sharp details of this tiny orchid. I like your POV and the soft background too. Well done!
TFS and regards, Ulla

A superb macro of the flower of a Mirror Orchid with extraordinary sharpness and details. I like the POV and lighting and the DOF is excellent for such a close macro.
I like it very much and it is going into my favorites!
Thank you very much for sharing this.
I see a funny face wearing a hat on this Orchid, Jose :-).
As usual, a fantastic capture with superb details and colours.
How are you keeping, my friend?

Wonderful shot of this beautiful Orchid and it really seems like it is wearing a hat, as Mr. Ram suggests. Immaculate sharpness and colours with good use of natural lighting. I like its shape. Excellent DOF, POV and composition. Kudos.

Some flowers look like strange insects!
This must be one of the more unusual orchids, in particular I notice the hairy petals and strange colours...
Macro work is well done, sharp fine details in the subject!

Very similar to the iricolor version. Great details, POV, light, and colors mf. Just enough DOF to highlight the important parts of this interesting orchid.

¡Vaya! Ésta sí que es una orquidea curiosa con esas barbas! Me pregunto si atraerá a muchos bichos para polinizarla, porque a mí más bien me asusta. Fuera tonterías, la flor es muy interesante y le has hecho un primer plano de lujo.
Felicidades y hasta pronto.

an absolutely stunning document of an orchid blossom that has reached the ultimate level of imitating a sitting bumblebee. Expressively taken from a perfect point of view, the shining reflections, the hairy parts, and all the other very complex structures very well presented. Thank you! With best regards,

Buna caza José! y muy bien captado el labelo. Buena luz y fidelidad en los colores. Un pelín justa de profundidad pero na :-)

With a little bit of imagination one can actually see a bee in the design of this beautiful little orchid.
A little higher ISO setting could probably have pushed the shutter speed a bit and that way increased the range of the DOF, but I think you previously expressed your concern with noise when you set the ISO upward so perhaps this was the best possible result with the Finepix. Anyway, you have captured excellent details on the frontal areas of the flower, especially on the lip, the column, and the lateral sepals. The colours are also very pleasing on the eyes.
Well done and TFS.
