Orchids in their natural habitat

by moof » Fri Jan 15, 2010 8:24 am

Hi,
I'm busy last time and don't have enough time for the forums, but today I've less to do and I decided to pay you a visit:) One of my hobbies is photography, and my favourite subject is to photograph plants in their natural habitat. And, it's hard to find more spectacular ones than orchids:) Here are some photos from my photostream on flickr.com

This one is slightly more rare than the other orchids here. I was working to preserve the place were the specimens from the photo were growing, but I failed to. There's a rubbish tip there now.

Dude, Orchids don't "eat" insects.

That made me giggle. Orchids are just cool plants, Kenny. They're under the Non-Carnivorous discussion forum because they're non-carnivorous. They don't eat insects.

Yes, that's true. But some of them actually catch insects for pollination, and release them back after a few hours or days.
