  • Orchids like cowbirds often flock together
    forming alliances, building networks, becoming members of groups

    Secure in the fact that a single stem, a branch or trunk
    could and would bind them together and give each life, without doing harm to the other

    During this afternoon shoot, I found more than one with distinct color and form
    watercolor, white, yellow, torch red, purple, pink, and spotted orchids

    All thriving, rooted intimately on or among a small grove of palm trees in a residential community
    unattended and unobserved by nor’eastern owners - from April to September

    All were flawless, vivid and exquisite
    but the Grammatophyllum Yuan Nan Tiger Praw seem to know how to get and keep the power

    By sheer numbers - Occupy
