    YES, Ron, take BD and me to Peru with you! Or better yet, let's organize an Orchid Forum trip to Peru to see the orchids in situ ...

    The picture of the peruvian orchid is amazing, what a beauty!!!

    I can see this as a prelude to the book "Orchid Fever II" lol.
    Sounds like a great idea though.

    It's a beauty! I would love to go on orchid safari, but are there big spiders in the area. That would stop me dead. Of fear!

    I was prepared for the worst...I even found 100% DEET to take with me but never used it. I think I had one bite during the whole trip. I had seen a Tarantula while in the rainforst of Belize but no big spiders while in peru. I saw some neat smaller ones though.
