    Orchids certainly come in some very interesting, and unusual looking varieties! This has to be one of the stranger ones...very very cool looking though!!

    I so wish that I could grow Dracula's but it's simply not possible. I'll just have to admire your growing and photography. Thanks for posting Thomas!

    Oh that is stunning. It looks so soft and fuzzy in that extreme close up photo. I love it.
