Artist's Description

This Orchid is from Ecuador. Ecuador is a tiny country but has over 4000 named Orchid species and more being described every year. With so many Orchids one would expect to find them everywhere. They are everywhere but finding them is very difficult. One reason is that a great number are tiny like this Stelis. The bush is thick and if you don’t know what you are looking for you never see them. We had an excellent guide without whom the trip would have been a bust.
I don’t like using any kind of a scale in plant photos but in this case the whole appeal of the flower is it’s size – 3mm – so a scale is necessary.
