    That last photo is absolutely stunning! I can't say I've ever seen the hairs in such detail before.

    They look like hairs but actualy they are glands to attract insects.

    Amazing photos!! I have also never seen the glands/hairs in that level of detail before!! Very beautiful. They look like tiny versions of the glands/hairs on Masdevallia glandulosa!!
