I haven't posted pictures of flowers in AGES. I'm about to remedy that. These were taken with my least favorite camera so the quality isn't the best but who cares, right? Not me! Except maybe a little. *grunt*
This is some kind of Andean orchid.
One of the guys on the trip said they remind him of angels or dancing ladies in ball gowns. I agree.
Speaking of dancing ladies (and shoes - because we were all thinking of shoes when I said dancing, right?), here are the biggest lady slippers I've ever seen. I wish I had a perspective shot but I didn't think of that at the time. Trust me, they were really big. Like a size 12.
And that concludes my Y post for Alphabe-Thursday!
