Hello Raimundo,
What a fasinating orchid you have presented to us. The petals are so intricately designed and the colors are simply stunning. A real beauty!!
It has been quite some time since I visited your beautiful country, but I will never forget the burning sting I recieved from touching one of your native caterpillars.

Bonjour Raimundo,
Agréable valorisation du sujet ; merci pour le partage.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
