Orchids on my travels

Originally uploaded by orchids77.
While adventuring through New Zealand in 2004 I came upon Stanhopea oculata in a city park and thought that it's abstract flower deserved to be photographed. Recently, I learnt that it's native range is quite large - from Mexico to Columbia and the Amazon Basin in northern Brazil; and that it can grow in a variety of medium - from rainforest floors to trees and even rock 5000 feet up.
