    Default Catasetum discolor, female flower pollinated, from Brazil

    In this series you observe the pollination of Catasetum discolor, the female flower Eulaema polychroma (Friese, 1899), is a wonderful event to watch, unique opportunity that only happens once a year.

    How did you get such amazing pictures? Wow! I have taken a few thousand pictures and have to say 'bravo'! Did you have a motion sensor camera on them? I'm downright impressed.

    Dear Friend,

    I use a compact Fuji HS20, just focus and click, I think it's a bit of luck, this type of orchid attracts many pollinators, pollinator is the same as the Brazil nuts, so it is easy.

    Thank you for your visit have a great week.
