Orchidaceae – Hanging around

Every year the orchids are displayed a little bit differently at the conservatory.  This year quite a few of them were displayed in big bunches or hanging baskets which was alright but not my favorite way to experience them (or photograph them).  There were some that were very interesting that I hadn’t seen before and a few old friends but as they were hanging from the ceiling and I didn’t have a zoom lens…I just had to make do.  In this photo you can see the stem that is sticking out is another kind of phalenopsis but in the background there is another species of orchid which always reminds me of pansies.  Turns out thanks to the orchid whisperer, John, they are nicknamed Pansy orchids; real name Miltoniopsis.  Thanks again, Chicago John.
