OMG so beautiful
Didnt expect to find any orchids up here, but here they were:
growing on crystal series:
not carnivorous, but just as stunning:
Eriocaulon sp. flower:
Now the Best, H. glabra. a little background---apparently, Brazil doesnt like the US so much, and ordered that all US Americans obtain visas, regardless of the time stayed. Stew, who managed the trip was unaware of this requirement till we got to the border....H. glabra on Mt. Roraima is only found on the Brazilian side of the mountain...so we had a decision to make: play safe, or go all in. We decided getting shot at was worth being one of the less-than-20-people-to-ever-photograph-H. glabra-in-the-wild. The fog provided great cover...and our mission was accomplished. Altogether, i illegally entered Brazil for about an hour and a half.
