Not the best quality pic but given the current state of affairs here in MN and around the country it struck me that our flag was perfectly calm... 

Touring around near Cades Cove the other day.

Took the new setup to the zoo today, also got to test out the weather sealing since it was raining.

Tried to get some milky way pictures. Moon was to bright though.

I’ve never seen anywhere near that many stars, moon or no moon!

This is known as the clam shell orchid. AKA Encyclia cochleata. Growing in the new world from Northern South America, central America, the Caribbean and South Florida. The one in the picture is natural to South Florida. It flowers sequentially. A new flower appears as the previous one is fading.

Right after rain there is always good contrast. Overcast skys and everything covered in water makes the colors pop like some poly on figured wood. That looks like a nice piece of nature you get to enjoy Rick.

You share some of the coolest flowers with us Curlyoak. That is a cool flower. I"m always amazed at how adapted the different orchid species are and how many different climates they grow in.

Chestnut, There are many successful orchid grower in climate like yours. I think if I lived in colder climate I would not grow orchids. But living where I do, they are a lot easier. No work bent over or on your knees. No row to hoe. They do get weeds. The plant demands are different but not difficult. And not hard to figure out.
