    The second photo is my favorite. I love the 'splash' pattern.

    Nice shots, Pavel! These three actually represent the different forms of harlequin Phals. The only one that's missing is one with picotee edges on the petals. The second and third ones are becoming more commonly seen, but are still less typical than the guy in the first photo.

    Harlequin phals are fun because they really have such a wide (sometimes crazy) range of spots and sploches. Those are very nice, but my favorite is #2. Thanks for snapping photos of them.

    Hmmm, Hadn't really thought about the 3rd one being a "harlequin". I think my overall favorite is the 2nd but the other two still catch my eye when I glance them over.
