Mormodes Orchids

Pretty as a Picture

Pretty as a Picture

These orchids grow throughout Mexico and south to Bolivia and Brazil in tropical forests. Usually they grow on the rotting parts of trees or rotting logs and trunks.

Another photo from the Bolz Conservatory in the Olbrich Botanical Gardens in Madison. My favorite place to photograph when I’m in the mood to take photos and still stay warm.

    Beautiful image. It’s interesting how nature recycles.

    Lovely shot. Orchids are among my favorite flowers. They are usually very easy to take care of (pardon my grammer) 🙂

    What a gorgeous shot, Bo. I love the pale pinks and greens. One of my favorite color combinations. (I have Dusty Rose for my plates, although I’m not terribly attached to a set of dinnerware any longer.)
