Artist's Description

After a refreshing tropical rain shower (Dec.)
I went for a wander
Outside
In the home wet tropics garden
In hand,
My digital camera with faithful old manual prime lens
,,,

  • Discovered
    Suspending in semi shade, dappled light
    A display of orange/golden yellow blooms
    An Epiphytic orchid (Orchidaceae)
    (Dendrobium hybrid?)
    Against a saturated green backdrop
    Two wing-like petals soaring
    Plus bottom one, with slipper-like lip
    Inside two maroon coloured
    Teardrop-shaped eyes
    Mingling amongst the wet star apple leaves.

Location ~ Rural region near Innisfail in Tropical Far North Queensland, Australia

Extra Notes of interest
Epiphyte
An epiphyte is a plant that grows non-parasitically upon another plant, and derives its moisture and nutrients from the air, rain, and sometimes from debris accumulating around it instead of the structure it is fastened to.
