    Default Paph Hsinying Alien in bloom

    This is my first Paph. The color is not as intense as some of the pictures i have seen online, but I still like it. I love the little freckle dots.

    Harvey,
    I need to take better pictures and get those eyelashes too. My digital SLR battery was dead this morning, so I used my phone. Hopefully tomorrow morning I can get better lighting and a better pic with the Nikon. I've got to get those eyelashes in the pic.

    If you look closely, they are visible in the pic provided already. But for me, I always want the sharpest image I can get of my blooms. I am sure you are the same way!
