|Spider orchids appear in a great variety of colours and sizes, usually they are about 100mm from the top of the highest petal to the bottom of the lowest, this orchid was around 300mm hence the name. Shot with Sony505v|

Very impresive species! I have never seen such ochrid. By the way, it would be nice to know how huge was this flower (I can compare if with some other plant species but it is still not clear :>) - 40cm? 20cm?
interesting orchid, nice to see its habitat. Yuo can reduce contrast a little. TFS Ori

Rare orchid and nice background. I agree with Ori about contrast.
