    Default another reminder of the exquisite beauty of orchids...

    @Thomas- thank you for the pictures and information. Although I'm in Hawai'i- it's not all sun & beaches and I live near the confluence of a few interesting microclimates- so I really appreciate the species' home climate info and size. (This one might find a place in my collection someday!)

    ...and once again, beautiful pictures, thank you!
