Happy New Year! I know that it has been a while since I've last updated, so I'll try to get back in the habit. Almost one year ago I was boarding a flight to Australia (by way of New York and Shanghai) to see my research organism for the first time. I had a blast touring around for six weeks hunting orchids, reuniting with old friends, and meeting new ones. But best of all, I found plenty of orchids to photograph and sample -- more on that later.
I will be sharing more photos from my trip and research soon, but for now enjoy this Dipodium variegatum, the slender hyacinth orchid, that I found north of Batemans Bay, New South Wales.
Here's wishing you a healthy and prosperous 2015!
