Beautiful Orchid flower. TFS.
The colours are a bit dull, perhaps because of harsh sun light. I have posted a WorkShop version with increased contrast. Please comment.

Hi Juanita,

This come a little late...

Lovely species! Have not seen that one before. I like Nirmal's corrected image. It is always difficult to take pix of light flowers in harsh sunlight.
