    Default identifying birthday gifts

    Anyone can help me identify these 2 orchids i got for my birtday?

    Gr. Erik
    Here's the first one.
    The colors are pretty accurate, only a faint yellow rim on the bottom lip is almost not visible.

    Let me guess: the first one could be Cambria Tahoma, and the second one Miltonidium Bartley Schwarz.
