    Default Superb Orchid display

    This is a display presented at the Orchid Society of Alberta's Show by The Calgary Zoo. The photograph (and others like it) were taken by Abu Salleh and shown on his social network page.

    The display was constructed by a Mr. Dale Cote, a 70+ year old ranch hand from Alberta. All but a few of the tree branches were made from used cans. Fabulous way to recycle.

    The branches are natural. Everything else is used cans. Butterflies, hummingbirds and such are in the display as well. There are a couple of closeup shots on the same page. I like the Brassavola cucullata.
