Photographer's Note

Vanda Miss Joaquim is Singapore's national flower, chosen in 1981 and first discovered in the garden of Miss Agnes Joaquim in 1893. It is a natural hybrid between Vanda teres and Vanda hookeriana. This specimen was photographed on a damp day in Singapore's stunning Botanic Gardens. It is difficult to say which of the hundreds of different orchids in the Orchid Garden I liked the most but this one is certainly in my Top Ten.
