Beautiful flowers Luna -- you take wonderful pictures! The fish (in the post below) made me hungry, even though I just finished a good dinner! And I loved the 'worth of a tree" sign . (As you can tell, I'm catching up).

Nice shots. I think they are the most common Orchid here. They have to be kept inside during the winter.
