Chloraea magellanica

Chloraea magellanica

Botany Photo of the Day will have brief written entries on weekends, holidays and my vacations from April through September. – Daniel

Thank you to Krystyna Szulecka, who is a frequent contributor on the UBC Botanical Garden Forums, for contributing today's photograph (original in this thread). Krystyna is associated with the FLPA nature photography agency, and you can see more of her excellent images by searching for “Krystyna” on the FLPA web site.

Krystyna photographed this porcelain orchid in Lanin National Park, part of Patagonian Argentina. Its occurrence here places Chloraea magellanica among the southernmost distributed orchids in the world.

I love orchids and a new finding is even more exciting. I'm originally from the south hemisphere and yet did not know the existence of this type of orchids.

Again, another lovely photograph.
