Default Masdevallia nidifica

Hope you'll forgive the attempt at an "artsy" shot. I've been playing around with an effect that lets you color just one portion of the photo. Kinda cheesy, but on the other hand it focuses attention on the bloom. I grow this one I/W, mounted on a 3" chunk of wood, sprayed daily. Easy grower and bloomer. Flowers seem more red than other examples I've seen of this species. -Stephen

Great shot! The blooms look good, nice form and colour.
