    Wow! That's pretty neat - it looks like some creature extending tentacles with little grabby pinchers on it. Scary, if it wasn't so darned pretty!

    Thanks for the exposure to something new!

    That orchid is art! I love the beautiful curves of the bloom and the way the plant displays its blooms. Stunning photos of this orchid too Thomas.
