    Hello! My name is Viktoriya, I love orchids with all my heart and grow them for about 15 years. The most beloved are cattleyas, laelias, phalaenopsisis and dendrobiums.
    I like to photograph orchids in the wild.
    Here are some of my photos.

    Your English is good enough for us. Welcome to the forum and thank you for your post. Many here love to see orchids in habitat. Sorry for my ignorance, but are there any wild orchids in Russia?

    I took this photo 2 years ago. Today it's warm, like in the spring. In winter, in my city usually frosts-10-20 degrees (–°), and in the summer, it's very hot +30-38.

    There is really snow on the stem. I opened the window and held the plant with one hand, and the second photographed. If someone saw this, he probably laughed))
