I agree. I would give that phot a 10! Beautiful shot of a very interesting orchid



What a beauty Bernard wouldn't mind one of these myself.
Mother nature is truly amazing.



Thanks for your kind comments. It's always a pleasure to see the results of ones efforts coming to fruition. However, I purchased this plant a few months ago at an orchid event and I spied a small green scabrous swelling on the stem which I suspected could be the start of an inflorescence.
So really I shouldn't take all the credit.
