Are these growing in the wild? Beautiful colors and details. Lovely image

@Ruthiebear: Yes. It's wild orchids that are my mild obsession :) These ones are growing on the verge of a forestry wood near here. I visit them every year if I'm around and I'm pleased to say they are flourishing and gradually spreading too.

A great series of snapshots of these beautiful orchids in this collage!! Each well deserving of its own solo appearance!
