Photographer's Note

What a flare for colour! This is an epiphytic orchid, that grows on another plant, without, at the same time, being parasitic; e.g. moss on a tree.

(In my travels, I once visited the huge treasure-trove of orchids at the Orchid Lodge, on the slopes of a mountain outside Wabag, Enga Province, Papua New Guinea. Travelling to this destination by road from Lae was an unforgettable experience! It is of course much easier to see some orchids outside Bangkok, and forget the northern winter.)
