    Default Cattleya - Yellow/Pink

    I was gifted this beautiful cattleya and it really made me happy when I took some pictures of it. I love to take photos of pretty things. I can't wait to see what it does in the future. I'm not sure what it's called other than a Cattleya, and it's also a 'compact'. Please Enjoy the photo! And if you have any insight as to the specifics of its type I'd appreciate it.

    Nice photography, it will be difficult to id from this photo though. A frontal photo showing the petals and the lip in one plain will be very helpful, very beautiful.

    Perhaps, it has some gutatta, aklandiae or similar blood, since the spotting on the petals and the texture suggest that.
