Our 2006 Trip to Ecuador and Peru
After a long day of orchid hunting, a
cold beer before dinner sounds good!
Somewhere in this bunch of flowers was a Euglossa
bee - doing it's thing.  Darned if I can find it now....
Looks good - should I try one?  Looks
like candy.
Orange seems to be the flower color of the day
There was also fungus amungus
Shan & Elyse selling sea shells on the sea
shore.
This little beauty was flowering from a vine and was about the
size of an African Violet.  Within minutes of taking the photo, the
flower folded!  Talk about being camera shy!
Rattlesnake heliconia growing wild in
the rain forest jungle.
