When my mother comes to Chicago for a visit, we always head out to Orchids by Hausermann in Villa Park. This time of year, many orchids are in bloom and we spend hours exploring acres of plants. I brought along my camera and took over 70 pictures. There is something about orchids that makes me want to capture their amazing look in photographs. This particular orchid is one that went home with my mom to Colorado.
