    They may be a pain, but you've clearly overcome the difficulties! Lovely, as usual! What section of Dend is this guy from?

    You are so good at capturing that pristine white color, and the crystal texture.

    Beautiful, almost translucent. As soon as I saw it I thought of lovely lace wedding dress.

    Whenever I see Dendrobium with a hard to pronounce specific epiphyte, Im usually certain it's a post from ntgerald.

    Lovely - it's so tiny and delicate. Like a beautiful sugar flower on a cake. Thanks for sharing, and the pics are great.

    For what it's worth, I just recieved Jim Cootes' book, Orchids of the Philippines today and it's wonderful!

    I recently bought a used copy of Kew's Orchid's of Borneo Vol 1 and thought it a nice addition to a reference library, but it didn't contain enough species that I had interest in to make it useful to me. Cootes' book covers many genera and species I'm interested in, chocked with photos - few line drawings, which many of the monographs rely on. If nothing else, it's a great companion to Nelson's posts and I'd highly recommend it. Fret not - a large, if not the largest, online book seller has it in stock and it's not unreasonably priced for the number of photos and the quality of the book.
