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 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.
