New spikes

Many plants are spiking right now. Here is Renanthera monachica with two branching spikes.

Vanda testacea, has maybe the smallest flowers of all Vandas, 1-1,5cm.
I have some ants in my greenhouse that pollinates this plant as soon as the flowers have opened. Leaving me each flower for a week or so before it starts turning in to a pod.

Here is a better picture of Vanda Arjuna from yesterday. Not so many flowers this time.

How do one get good pictures of white flowers???? I have tried to photograph this one, Rhynchostylis coelestis f. alba, for a long time. But all pictures turn out without sharpness.
Tips please!
