Masdevallia regina

By ChiliMan
Many thanks to all who commented and voted on my Daisy Type Things yesterday.

Above that, I’m all grinny at so many wonderful comments. Ta Grin

Ann ( EAS ), thanks so much for ID’ing the daisy type things as Rudbeckia. Also I found the hoverfly in V3 of ‘ Wandering StarsSmile

Brian ( Brilane ), you’re most welcome for the UA. Those blues in V2 are surreal and utterly amazing!


Now then…today’s upload. Something else from the flower show. One of the orchids which TOTALLY killed me. Oh…my…word. Isn’t it weirdly wonderful?? I love weird orchids. I love species orchids. This is both.

Thought it was a special chili onion you had cultivated Andrew !!
Might have been a bit tasty for my liver and onions.
But dunno what it would do to my own liver !!
Good shot.
