National Geographic photos of new orchid species

I found some National Geographic photos of four of the new orchid species recently discovered in Papua New Guinea.

I think my favourite is the third one, but they are all beautiful!

From another article, "Conservationists say the discovery of so many new orchids in the unexplored rainforests of Papua New Guinea is incredibly exciting - especially as around 70 species have recently been wiped out in neighbouring Indonesia."

Thank you for posting. I love orchids and have a dark purple orchid as an arm tattoo. I love the meaning of the flower in case your wondering why.
