Sunshine Superman

This Lady’s Slipper orchid just made me think of that song with it’s bright yellow and green colors and the light shining through it.

Lady’s Slipper

Really?  Why they were named this still amazes me – I mean c’mon! But they are still fascinating orchids nonetheless.

Oncidium in formation

This stem of Oncidium orchids reminds me of choreographed dancers that are all in line one in front of the other and that fan out on cue.

Cymbidiums Again

This is one of the orchids at the show that had a wonderful fragrance although some would say the one orchid species that smells like chocolate wins the prize.

Oncidium Wildcat ‘Yellow’

I’ve often come upon a species of butterfly that I’ve never seen before when I visit butterfly exhibits but not so much with orchids.  I’m starting to get the hang of the names of the orchids when their show returns here each year.   So far I haven’t been surprised by any new ones but that could change – I hope so.
