Tropical hideaway in Michigan – Orchid #1
Had just enough time this morning to drop by the botanical garden at the University of Michigan for a few minutes and shoot the grounds and some orchids inside the tropical garden. It was fun visiting the indoor section of the botanical garden – like finding a secret tropical hideaway in the middle of our Michigan winter! Next time I’ll shoot the tropicals first, as condensation proved to be a challenge coming in to the humid garden from the cold outside. After a few minutes, the camera warmed up and I still had about 5 minutes to capture this orchid. Taken with a Nikon D80, Nikkor 50mm, f/2, 1/640 sec, ISO 200.
