[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The orchid family, Orchidaceae, is the most numerous in the plant kingdom. There are about 25,000 to 30,000 known species of orchids around the world. Orchids are found in all continents except Antarctica, from hot tropical jungles to the cold climate in North America. However, some orchids are found only in certain region of the world and nowhere else, for example, the Vanda genus colonizes only South East Asia.

Orchids are the most beautiful, the most sensual, the most exotic, and the most costly flowers.

I dedicate this flower to our Brazilian friend and excellent photographer Mesquens1 (raimundo mesquita) who is a sure lover of Orchids.
