fallen phal


This particular phaleonopsis or moth orchid in my collection has been blooming for several months. Today two flowers fell off and I felt the urge to scan them. I love seeing closely the fine textures and patterns – imagine them larger on a full screen.

Compare this to some earlier scanned phals: papery and freshly fallen.
