Disa eminii – orchid of the day

Disa eminii small

We found some great orchids in Nyungwe today but orchid of the day goes to this fantastic terrestrial. We first spotted something bright and orchid shaped on the road verges from our coach. Jacob declared it to be Disa eminii at 40mph without the aid of a book “it’s one I remember reading about” was his only excuse for this outrageous piece of high speed botanising.
