    Default Encyclia vitellina.

    This a tiny plant.Pseudobulbs are less than 1" high.
    Spike is about 12" high with 3 flowers.
    The colour(which is very hard to get right without natural light) is a really deep orange.
    This is it,s first blooming.Blooms are just over 1" across.

    They look like they come with their own batteries!

    But you're right, Steve - it's really hard to get those shades photographed accurately.

    I've long thought it would be neat to have a Photography forum where we could discuss the techniques of orchid photography. We have some wonderful pros here and a lot of learned experience among us.
