    Hello orchid friends,

    Finally, a copule weeks ago, I had the pleasure of visiting Tatamá. This is an area in Colombia with a very high diversity of plants. This was not the best time of the year for orchids, there were less flowers because of the recent lack of rains but we were able to record more than 100 species in a couple of days.

    Here is my Flickr album with the pictures for all of you to enjoy.

    Now I see why there were substitutes doing the "tell" on our show & tell table at this month's orchid society meeting!

    The pictures are incredible, Sebastiàn! Thank you for sharing.

    Sebastian, I had breakfast today with 2 of the members of the expedition and it was a big topic of conversation. They both had a great time and are talking about the next trip.
