Some pictures from the ASOEM exhibit

September 30, 2003

This week was the meeting of the Miranda Orchid Society, sadly the only exhibit held these days in Caracas every year. I took some pictures, but did not bring a tripod and lighting was quite variable, but here are some favorites: From top to bottom: Top left: C. Mossiae from the Merida Society which won first prize for Venezuelan species. Top Right: Stanhopea Tigrina Negriscensis. Bottom Left: Cirropetalum Elizabeth Ann and Bottom Right: Catasetum. Enjoy!

Scary stuff indeed.
