    Beautiful!!!! I have always had a soft spot for the airy pink floofies. Love the photograph too - the high-key effect seems to have enhanced the feeling of 'airiness'. Great shots, BD.

    That's a beautiful Hybrid with only 4 species used to get this pastel pink color.
    C. harrisoniana, C. trianae, C. nobilior and L. anceps. This hybridizer knows what he is doing.

    Thanks everyone. I liked this orchid before, but now I really do. Thanks Horst for the background. I wanted to look it up, but my computer is still not here yet. I should get it tomorrow and can install Owiz again. Pretty tired of this tiny laptop.

    Cheers,
