Photos of birds, fish, flowers and miscellaneous things that catch my eye and instill a sense of wonder.

Holy Andes Mints
Stanhopea occulata. This just popped into bloom in the greenhouse and the powerful fragrance of chocolate mint is wafting in the air. Wow. Beautiful and smells tasty too! What more could you ask for? Do you suppose they're edible? Nah...they're too pretty to eat anyhow. Of course, cows are kind of cute too...
