Flower of Inirida, Inírida, Colombia On our 2nd day in the Colombian Amazon, we were supposed to cross a stream by jeep to access a remote birding spot. The jeep immediately got stuck in the water, and we had to continue on a 2 hour walk muddying through water at knee level. As we did so, we saw hundreds of these flowers. The locals cannot stop talking about it. It is locally endemic, quite beautiful and you'll see it in vases in everybody's house. Even when it is completely dried out, it is a nice piece of decoration.
