    Default dark paph - Paph Maudiae ‘Los Osos’ AM/AOS x Red Pepper

    My first paph blooms again, even though the bud got attacked by bugs. My father liked this one. It's one of the more vigorous of my maudiaes. I think when I first posted it a while back it was with my old camera. It doesn't balance well on a black background with my current camera because the paph is dark, so I used phal amabilus and a statue of Aphrodite I bought in Italy as props to help with the white balance on my camera.


    I have a sibbling of this one that is lighter in color too for comparison. This pic is from last year.
