  17. Orchids indeed have endless variety. And your photography is so awesome :)

    Just a small snippet of information here! - almost all orchids have some kind of partnership with some kind of fungi. The relationship/symbiosis in nature is one of its kind - specific orchids cannot live without specific fungus, and vice-versa!
