    amazing photos and thank you for showing us a little of Borneo! This is one of the places I would love to go sometime. Seeing orchids in situ is a wonderful experience... like discovering a friend's home.

    The orange Epigenium is beautiful!

    I love your photos, especially the bamboo orchids and the Eulopia. How exciting it must have been to see all of these!

    Thanks for the tour. Its always great to see the plants in their natural environment. It gives a different perspective on trying to make them grow upright in a pot. I've enjoyed the tour.

    We also took the opportunity to visit Wind Cave. We were running out of time so we were unable to explore the cave.
