[chuck] in Other, The New York Botanical Garden, orchids

I waited until the last day to see the orchid show, Brazilian Modern, at The New York Botanical Garden. The blossoms had been on display since February 28, but they were still breathtaking. I snuck in before the Conservatory officially opened to the public and had the whole place to myself. I can't imagine evolution ever producing a floral structure more sublime than that exhibited by this group of plants. [NOTE: Music by Bebel Gilberto].
