More from Orchids in the Park

Dave took so many great photos at this year’s Orchids in the Park that it was easy to find enough for another post. The first set includes a shapely Paph, a haunting Dracula, and an intriguing¬†Vanda close-up.

Once again, these photos highlight the incredible diversity of the orchid family. Each appeals to a specific bug or bird as a pollinator. Of course, these fantastic shapes, colors, and scents appeal to lots of humans, too.

From the artistic yellow, white, and brown bloom of a Rossioglossum, to tiny, intricate Dendrochilum flowers dangling in a chain, there’s endless variety. You’re not alone if it’s tough for you to imagine how all these plants could possibly be related. It’s a guarantee that orchids are never boring.
