Adventure is always good!
That is an amazing flower in your profile pic but I totally understand your concern about posting it and I think you were right. For me I try to post only spottings from the wild.
Your spotting from Malaysia is very cool!

I'm looking all over. The UK would be good but we're up for an adventure if it feels right!

The profile pic is Corybas diemenicus, a cracking little Australian terrestrial. I wasn't sure if it was fitting to post as it's cultivated. Corybas are incredible, especially the Asian spp. Have you seen this one?: http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/749...

Needed a ringflash really but you get the idea.

Very cool! You should add that info to your bio. Where are you looking to get a collection going? In the UK? Btw, what's the flower in your profile pic?

Cool, I'm looking forward to them. I'm a horticulturalist like you and hopeless orchid nut! Just finished 3 years training at Kew and looking for somewhere to get growing a nice collection.

Okay, me too! I can see you love orchids as much as I do. Looks like I have 3 left unidentified and about 5 more species that I have yet to upload. I will definitely give you a heads up when I post them. Are you a Botanist?

Thanks but no, sorry Craig, these 2 photos are all I have. Did you have a genus in mind?
