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

On the Wild Side, Life in Miniature
Pleurothallis scurrula. Most of the Stanhopea have finished blooming in the greenhouse but the tiny Pleurthallis are just getting into full bloom as the greenhouse temperatures rise. These fern-like orchids have tiny flowers, some just millimeters across. This flower is around a centimeter high. You have to stop and take a serious look to appreciate these little guys.
