Caption: View of an unidentified epiphyte growing on the trunk of a tree in the montane rainforest of northern Ecuador. Many rainforest plants grow as epiphytes or "air plants", obtaining water and nutrients from the air and rain. They are not parasitic: the host tree provides support for the plant but is not harmed by it. The photograph was taken at an elevation of 1500 metres on the western slopes of the Andes.
