A Child’s Garden of Orchids

Daily Kos offers a tropical respite from a chilly New York spring. Skilled photographer Eddie C shares his visual obsession with an overview of the New York Botanical Garden’s orchid show. At the outset, he declares “For me the Orchid Show in the New York Botanical Garden is like Christmas is to a child.” Hunting for the perfect Phal portrait, he captures the essence of the event with over three dozen magnificent photos. With colorful Phals, Cattleyas, Lady Slippers, Oncidiums, and more, he also manages to evoke the show’s floral saturation.

The exhibit ran for more than seven weeks in theĀ Enid Haupt Conservatory, a Victorian glasshouse in the Bronx. Some of the tree branches used in this year’s displays were knocked down by Hurricane Sandy.
