IN THE TROPICS, this year’s orchid show at the Chicago Botanic Garden is certainly something to
remember. There are 10,000 orchids (at least) on display so it’s a must-see floral experience. The good news is that the show is running through Sunday, March 24. Opening hours are 10 am – 4pm with an evening extension until 8 pm on Thursdays. Grab a camera (no tripods) and drop by. Ticket prices are low, but photo ops are sky high. Remember to check your White Balance setting and use manual focus for sharp shots.
