A Single Bloom
Do you know where this beautiful orchid is? It's in the canopy of the Pacific Rain Forest in Costa Rica. When we were there we took a tram up to the canopy. This was the only orchid we saw. We learned a lot about Costa Rica on our trip. Did you know it only has two seasons? (the wet season and the dry season) We were there during the dry season. I'm guessing that's why we only saw one orchid. We were able to see several trees we had never heard of before: (I think these are the local names.) a Naked Indian Tree, a Monkey Brush Tree, and a Loofa Tree. I wish I had been able to get photographs of everything we saw. It was so different than our lives here in Iowa.
What have you seen in nature that overwhelmed you?
