    Simply amazing! I have a little itty-bitty pair of wasps that visit unopened vanda buds. I know they are sipping on the sugary secretions.

    I like the way the beak of this bird curves, to get the nectar in the throat of the flower. Both bird & spiders are beautiful...Betty

    Any orchid grower should know that snails do not EVER go to heaven! There is a very special place in hell for them! By the way, I want your camera...should I go ahead and send you my mailing address or wait until a bit closer to x-mas
