Vanda denisoniana

When the flowers of Vanda denisoniana orange open they are yellow (at least on my plant) and turn orange after a few days. On this former bloom, I was lucky enough to have two spikes with flowers who opened at different times. I took the first image with one spike who was already orange while the other still yellow.

The second image is a close up photo of the denisoniana orange. The color is undeniably orange and, in my opinion, very interesting. The shape of the petals and sepals is less appealing, due to a lack a roundness for this species and cause petals are nearly twisted. Minute spots can be seen as well, an advantage when they cover the whole flowers but usually judged as a "default" when they are sparsely markings the petals and sepals.
