Hawaii Orchid

Akala ʻOkika

A radiant akala ‘okika–pink orchid–comes into focus on the island of Hawaii. There are hundreds of species of orchids varying in size, shape, color, and scent. However, they all share at least one common trait–beauty.

Hawaii has diverse climate zones from island to island and especially within each island itself. Many of these climates are ideal for growing and breeding orchids. So much so that orchids have been a healthy export from Hawaii for many years. In fact, the Big Island is sometimes referred to as the “Orchid Isle.”

About Rob DeCamp

I am a professional photographer living on Maui, in the State of Hawaii. I made my living shooting weddings, but now have shifted my energy to nature photography. What started as a hobby, has now become my passion. I love to explore nature, and capture the ever changing colors and shapes that I find. No matter how many times I go back to the same place, it never is the same. The lighting, the weather all change to give me a different feeling. I think that is what inspires me to keep shooting!
