[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Yesterday we made a 370 mile round trip to see this beauty

Because the Monkey Orchid is so rare in this country, this particular hybrid has only been found once in the last 100 years. On the continent, however, the two parents frequently occur together and the hybrid is often encountered.
I have added a link which tells of the discovery of this hybrid
This is a link to HartslockNatureReserve
