Thanks to you all for your kind comments, I'm glad you enjoyed the pictures. You are right Jim, the Habenaria medusae is a special plant.

The last few pictures of Novembers orchids at Kew.Winter has arrived here in the UK, very cold with lots of snow and ice. I'm glad I'm working in a tropical nursery!

This little gem is Masdevallia angulata..
