Reply Simon Pugh-Jones says: January 21, 2019 at 9:06 pm Thank for your comment Kirsty – we have been lucky enough to see hummingbirds visiting orchids in Brazil. The orchid is Cattleya wittigiana Simon Pugh-Jones says: January 21, 2019 at 9:10 pm Check fresh post as the photo didn’t show on my reply. Kirsty says: January 28, 2019 at 5:36 pm Having just seen the photo you posted of the hummingbird visiting the Cattleya wittigiana in Brazil in 2000, I see from your comment below this is the same orchid also. It looked different to the pictures I found online. Thank you. Simon Pugh-Jones says: January 29, 2019 at 11:44 am Hi Kirsty – we have the small form of Maxillaria sophroniis shown here and a much larger form which is more common in cultivation and photos on the internet. I hope that explains it.
