Phalaenopsis II by rhoing

Phalaenopsis II

A very brief stop at the greenhouse today. Recently I posted a purple Phalaenopsis — common name “moth orchid”; family Orchidaceae, — but I have been more “taken” by the white ones. I think it’s a bit easier to capture the texture of the petals on the white flowers rather than the brilliant purple flowers. [Only adjusted the contrast and added name.]
