Great shot! Fascinating to think of an orchid being pollinated by a mosquito or at least a close relative of a mosquito,

Thank you Rachel2, Colin and Paul. I'm glad you liked it. I am struggling with my new-to-me camera and relieved to get some "keepers".

A fine macro of this tiny orchid and fascinating background info. The good thing about digital is that 'practice shots' don't cost. :)
