    Thank you, Thomas! Orchids being the tricky lil devils that they are, I didn't know if perhaps the hook was actually used to snag the pollinator to make it easier to dislodge the pollenia.

    Really cook. I like the closeup of the hook. haha.. When I saw that I though it was to hook the pollinator too. Love the tessellations in the bloom.

    Cheers,

    The first picture is awesome. What a beautifully grown plant, and one I've never seen before.
