Hawaii Tropical Botanical Garden, redux

We have so many great pictures from Hawaii Tropical Botanical Garden that I couldn’t fit them into just one post. So here are a few more orchids photos:

And here are a few more non-orchid photos:

And here are some great examples of how orchids grow in the wild. In the tropical rainforest, orchid roots hold on to tree trunks and branches so they can take advantage of brighter light above the forest floor. In the last picture, a Phalaenopsis seems to defy gravity holding on to a vertical surface, a mossy tree trunk.
