Masdevallias are orchids found from Mexico to southern Brazil, but mostly in the higher regions of the Andes of Ecuador and Colombia, Peru and Bolivia. They may be epiphytes, terrestrials or growing as lithophytes on damp rocks. Named after the 18th physician and botanist Jose Masdeval.
You will agree with me: the photographer Eric Hunt is a pro when it’s time to capture masdevallias.
