Orchids

In a festive mood

The lemon-yellow flowers of Oncidium altissimum  look ready to attend a fiesta. The yellow petals are ruffled on the edges, as is the lip. Also, brown markings appear on the petals, sepals and the enormous lip. Commonly known as Wydler’s Dancing Lady orchid, each blossoms are  about 2.5 cm across.
