SEVEN LADIES OF THE NIGHT © 2000Big Cypress Gallery, FL
The Lady Of the Night orchid is named for its nocturnal powers of seduction. It begins to emit its citrusy fragrance in the early evening to attract its pollinator – a nocturnal species of moth. This photo was taken at the Big Cypress Gallery. The misty effect was caused by lens fogging during humid conditions. This photograph is hand-printed in Clyde’s darkroom on fiber-based paper, selenium toned, then mounted and matted to current archival standards. The photograph is a limited edition and signed by Clyde. Disclaimer – Cropping, contrast, and image density may vary. To learn more about the darkroom printing process, click here.
