    The photos are just a bit blurred on my monitor. However, the
    flowers are lovely. Type of camera?

    Well composed! I love it when a photographer takes their time to create an image that speaks other than orchid language. In this case, I see a feathered white bird.

    AT my age, it certainly could be. I do have my reading glasses on.
    The second photo looks blurred; the first looks fine. In addition,
    I hate my Lenovo computer after having a Mac for many years.
    Sorry if the problem is me.

    When you shoot macro images, the depth of the focus area gets reduced to millimeters or less. Parts of the flowers are in focus but the depth of field means all of the image is not in focus.

    it is blurry. Macro is very difficult.
    What equipment are you using? Can you focus stack?
