Any Orchid experts out there??

It looks to me as if mimicking a flower praying mantis. Please do help me identifying this so that I can write some thing about it.

Thanks for looking.

Hello Haraprasan,
Beautiful orchid flower sharply and well presented, but as I am no expert on the subject I can't help with the ID.
It would be interesting to know where you found this and thanks for sharing this fine image,

Hello Haraprasan,
What a fabulous Orchid very nicely captured. Fantastic colours and good sharp details. For ID you must state the actual size of the whole Orchid as well as the shape of the leaves. But there are so many orchids in the tropics so it's not easy to identify. I assume you found it in the wild?
Many thanks, Ulla

Hi Haraprasan.
Wonderful close-up of fine flowers. Diagonal composition of the shot is superb. I also like great rich colours, excellent sharpness of the flower and pleasant blurriness of the BG which ic created by other flowers. My compliments and TFS.

Greetings from Cyprus,

Hello Prasan,
The colour of the Orchid is awesome, man!
very good closeup with sharpness and so much details to view and enjoy

Hello Haraprasan,
An interesting colour palette in this orchid!
Identifying these flowers are truly difficult as there are so many varieties and some of them lesser known...
Macro work here is well done, sharp fine details and good colour reproduction!
