Absolutely beautiful! I like the second picture, they are lined up so nicely and you were able to capture all of them facing the camera.
Very beautiful flowers.
The flower shape looks much like C. purpurata which by the way is one of the ancestors.
Connie, those are so beautiful, and pose quite well, too!
That is one beautiful orchid. Please educate me; is that a species? I know by reading the tag it is a hybrid, but it looks like a species to me. Can two species that are crossed be hybrids? Wait, did I just answer my own question...
For man-made hybrids, if you cross 2 species, or a species and a hybrid, or 2 hybrids, you get a hybrid, period. You can never get back to being a species by making more crosses.
