Yet Another Orchid
Growing in volcanic scree at the base of Arenal Volcano in Costa Rica.
This one, as you can see, is pink. Not white, not red, not white and pink striped, but pink. I think we can definitely state that we saw a lot of variety of this orchid growing in the volcanic rock.
Do you think they’re different species? Different subspecies? Or just natural variation of flower color within the same species?
