Paphiopedilum lowii, spotted slipper orchid

This orchid is one of a series of pictures taken at Carla Bischoff’s orchid greenhouse in Surrey, BC.  Carla has won many prizes for her orchids and is an acknowledged orchid expert.  Her outside garden includes many species of rhododendrons and her husband Bill is a cyclamen enthusiast and expert.  They are a wonderful resource for beautiful plants.

For this orchid series, I chose to isolate the exotic blooms against a white background.  The seems to emphasize the alien and erotic qualities of these exceptional flowers.
