    Default Huge Cattleya in Bloom

    I took this photo on Saturday, but just now got it re-sized to post here on OrchidTalk. This cattleya bloom is huge. I love the color and texture too. I hope you enjoy it.

    OMG! It's superfloof! I really love the colors, especially on the lip when they start to "blend" together. It's so pretty Bruce!
