Flower Friday - Orchids
Now I'm not sure if it's just because Phalaenopsis are so common, but I tend to prefer just about every other genus of orchid. My favourite at the moment seems to be Paphiopedilum. They are said to be a much more primitive orchid as referenced by the flower anatomy and colouration. I think my interest stems from the variation of colours, textures and patters in a single flower. I believe the first flowers below are Cymbidium, and the second photos are of one of my favourite Paphs.
