Pretty picture: Paphiopedilum Memoria Larry Heuer

I feel like the camera didn't handle this one particularly well this year. Fortunately, there's a better picture of the same plant from 2013, for anyone who's interested.

It seems like I took a lot of Paphiopedilum and Phragmipedium pictures again this year; some of the reason for that might be that they're easier to take pictures of. The auto-focus on the camera doesn't handle stuff with lots of little flowers at varying distances very well: it always seems to choose one particular bloom at random to focus on, and it's never the one I want it to focus on. But with a paph or phrag, the whole flower is right there, more or less facing the camera directly, and even if the pictures don't always turn out that well, they can't go wrong in as many ways.
