    I visited Atlanta for the American Counseling Association conference in 2008. I am from Calgary, Alberta and we accidentally 'discovered' the Botanical gardens while wandering around. That visit restarted my orchid addiction. - both growing and photographically. It was one of those seredipidous, life-altering events.

    The Phaius flavus of the 1st photo is wonderful. Love the Spathoglottis (kimballiana ?), Paphinia herrerae too. And, I agree with Pavel, great Jumellea specimen.
    Thanks Maura.

    Thanks to everyone for the id info - I'll eventually get the time to enter it into my records, but I'm fascinated that y'all recognized so much from the photos. And I'm truly flattered by your kind compliments. I'll be shooting some more in the conservatory soon, since they're upgrading their specimens right now - hooray!
