Mormodes Orchids

Pretty as a Picture

These orchids grow throughout Mexico and south to Bolivia and Brazil in tropical forests. Usually they grow on the rotting parts of trees or rotting logs and trunks.

Another photo from the Bolz Conservatory in the Olbrich Botanical Gardens in Madison. My favorite place to photograph when I’m in the mood to take photos and still stay warm.

About Bo Mackison

I’m a photographer, book-artist, traveler, naturalist, and creator of the Contemplative Creatives Journey, An Online Workshop and Community and Desert Wisdom Cards and Workshops. Though often not well known, I find the desert a welcoming place – a healing space. Its mysteries and gifts transformed me several years ago. Since that first encounter, I return again and again to fill my well in what most people think of as a desolate region. I’d love to share my desert discoveries and wisdom with you. Please subscribe to receive my five part mini email course The Gifts of the Desert. It’s my gift to you.


  1. Beautiful image. It’s interesting how nature recycles.

  2. Lovely shot. Orchids are among my favorite flowers. They are usually very easy to take care of (pardon my grammer) πŸ™‚

  3. What a gorgeous shot, Bo. I love the pale pinks and greens. One of my favorite color combinations. (I have Dusty Rose for my plates, although I’m not terribly attached to a set of dinnerware any longer.)

  4. I stopped by to catch up on your world. Loved all the images..especially these divine beauties!!

    I hope all is well with you and yours. πŸ™‚

  5. Nice orchid flower..I like orchid but it look different from the species here.
