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

Bulbophyllum species blooming at Kawamoto Orchids, Honolulu, Hawaii. Many Bulbophyllums are pollinated by flies and, as opposed to their sweeter smelling cousins the Cattleyas, can therefore be a teensy bit pungent. The lip (seen in the front of the flower) is, in many species, mobile and moves up and down with the wind or any movement.
