These photo collections include tulip photos from the Ottawa tulip festival, orchids, and miscellaneous flowers. I hope you like them.

Ottawa Tulip Festival

Each year, Ottawa puts on a two week long tulip festival. Here are some shots I have taken over the years. There is an amazing variety, many of which don't match my image of what tulips should look like. Some day, I'll document what types they are, but for now you will just need to enjoy the images.


In keeping with the flower theme, here are some photos of orchids. I had no idea of the number or differences in varieties. Many seem to have little faces on them. Almost all are very striking. The macro shots give you a bug's eye view of the flowers. I'd certainly want to land if I was a bug.
