Totally fabulous Jenn, Orchids are one of my favourite flowers, and I have a few, but not as beautiful as your image, and I can never seem to get a good capture of them.

A beautiful orchid for your desktop, Jenn: love the soft even lighting, the detail and colours and set against the greyish b/g you have a cracking good floral offering.

Love the image! These Orchids are always a chalenge to capture well but you certaibky got it spot-on with this! Re ID I think its a Phalaenopsis also know as the Moth Orchid. If so it should have something like 3-5 leathery oval leaves at the base?

I grow several types of Orchid here though far from an expert on the subject. Still trying to get over the new one I bought a couple of years ago from an exclusively Orchid source only to find when I got home that the helpful tag stated "Orchid"! In the long run how much does it matter to any plant what name we humamns give it, my wee Orchid flowers it's socks off regardless! Grin
