Moth Orchid


For every beauty there is an eye somewhere to see it.
For every truth there is an ear somewhere to hear it.
For every love there is a heart somewhere to receive it.

I usually prefer the original of any precious blossom, but the clarity of the petals in the 2nd is quite daunting....one word for both - wow

Lovely textures of your Phalaenopsis Luna! I smiled with that 2nd shot. You should see my Dendrobium photo in my other blogsite, it is almost the same as that Phalaenopsis in texture.

What a beautiful flower. Looking closely at your first photo I can see where the name comes from, there is a resemblance to a moth's head.
