I'm still learning, so seeing paphs such as these really interest me in their genetic connections, particularly. Sort of a quiz..."name *that* parent!" Lol, I am so hooked... this is what I do in my spare time. Nutter...

    Those are really nice shots, Pete. I'd never seen one of those in bloom before.

    Thanks, Mad Paphgirl! Yes, the last flower looks a lot darker than the others, so you must be correct! I love the looks of freshly opened flowers! And I love my supardii, nice parents too! Beautiful species and another one hard to find.
