Today's Flowers #52: Tree Orchid


@ mirandablue
Tree Orchid, Phoenix orchid, Day's cymbidium,
Aloe-leafed Cymbidium, Cymbidium Aloifolium

This orchid has totally taken over the tree at my aunt's front-yard.  I also noticed an army of red ants on stems and flowers.

"Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise:  Which having no guide, overseer, or ruler, Provideth her meat in the summer, and gathereth her food in the harvest."     ~ from the Bible

So strange to me that this exotic (to me) flower grows almost like a weed in your yard! It is beautiful.
