    Looks like some kind of creature with its tongue hanging out. Bet it will be beautiful when it opens.

    This are some cool looking buds! Can't wait to see the flowers! It looks to me like a chrysalis of some kind. Are you growing some butterflies there, Gin?

    I can see why ants would like it. It looks sweet and sticky.

    My first thought was that was the rear end of something fat and ugly was munching on your orchid. Scary! Some Halloween joke!

    I'm glad to know that that is a bud. I've never seen one like that, now I'm prepared for future happenstances. Thank you.

    Wow, that is weird. I can't wait to see what it will look like when in bloom!
