This Habenaria is striking and I like the folded-ribbon look on the Flickingeria - they are all interesting!

That habenaria is special for sure!

Jim
Nine requisites for contented living: Health enough to make work a pleasure. Wealth enough to support your needs. Strength enough to battle and overcome your difficulties. Grace enough to confess and forsake your sins. Patience enough to toil until some good is accomplished. Charity enough to see some good in your neighbor. Love enough to move you to be useful and helpful to others. Faith enough to make real the things of God. Hope enough to remove all anxious fears."
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Thanks to you all for your kind comments, I'm glad you enjoyed the pictures. You are right Jim, the Habenaria medusae is a special plant.

The last few pictures of Novembers orchids at Kew.Winter has arrived here in the UK, very cold with lots of snow and ice. I'm glad I'm working in a tropical nursery!

This little gem is Masdevallia angulata..
