Belinda's Orchid

Yesterday I took a few pictures of my sisters Orchid plant. Oh how it made me wish for a macro lens. I couldn't get as close as I wanted but I still love how they turned out.

The first one was taken with the 24-70mm 2.8:

The second one was taken with the 70-200mm 2.8. The minimum focusing distance is greater on this lens so I couldn't get quite as close even at 70mm but I love the bokeh it produces:

Don't let the photos fool you, this was a tiny plant!! From top to bottom INCLUDING the planter, it was only 8-10 inches tall. The photos make it look so big but it was tiny! Really cute plant. I would get one... but I hear orchids are pretty sensitive and I don't exactly have the greenest thumb. ;-)

Thanks for reading!
