Rare Orchids at the San Diego Zoo

By chance I happened to be at the San Diego Zoo on a 3rd Friday at 10:30am, walking toward the elephant area. I noticed that the sign said open (not pictured). So I strolled behind the buildings into a rather small room (large greenhouse, but small for the zoo). There were two volunteers and dozens of rare orchids. It was a delightful treat to see the different varieties.
