    Cool Pot. Paul Phelps x Blc Bouton D'or Lewis

    Another cattleya in bloom. I found this gem at an orchid show...maybe last year or the year before. It is a steady bloomer and in the sun it is a sight to see...very sparkly and a wonderful buttery yellow.

    I noticed this little guy hiding in a nearby vanda while snapping pictures of the cattleya. He sat nice and still even when I moved the leaf so I could get a better shot of him.

    Beautiful yellow! I'm sure your frog visitor on your vanda was there to see the beautiful blooms of your orchids.

    cheers,
