    Wow. I'm glad you posted those pics. Mom and Dad are very, very different. I think I like the one on the right the best.



    My kid looks better than either IMO

    Wow!

    Mom and dad are strikingly different, and both really contribute to little junior. A striking progeny. Thanks for the parent pics, Gin!

    So the hybridizer has done well with this one... the colours have really come out well in yours Kev. I don't think I like the peloric on one of the parents.

    Louis, Manga is a Japanese cartoon and fairy is a fairy... so if you look at the pic, the column tip looks like the head, and the column some kind of fairy lighting, and then the two wings of the labellum looks like the arms and the rest of the labellum is a skirt... ok, don't mind me, it was very early when i first posted...

    Cheers

    Very nice Equestris, Kev. Now that Tim described what a Manga Fairy is, it does look like a fairy in flight. I blocked the petals from view and I can see the dorsal sepals as the wings. You can also say that it looks like an angel. It all depends on your imagination .

    Tim may not be too far off base. The flowers are really very small, so there is a fairy quality about them.



    That is if you're into fairies. I of course am not being the manly type man I am.

    You guys ever see that "diary" book with the smushed fairrie pictures in the pages, like they were bugs that had been caught and flattened?

    I loved that.
