Orchid Miltonia Spectabilis

Another day when my group was out tramping around in the burning heat with their 500m lenses and I opted for a walk in the woods. The only price I paid was listening to a few more strange conspiracy theories from the gentleman who led me to the orchid. I could not believe my eyes when I saw this orchid growing on a tree that looked exactly like the set-ups in the New York flower show. All that bark and moss etc. really exists and these things really do flower that way; in the jungle, wet and dark with a single ray of sunlight.
