What the Flick....

Flickingeria I mean...... This genus has unusual flowers and like most orchids, they are interesting photo subjects. They are related to the more commonly grown Dendrobiums - that they themselves are not as popular is due to their ephemeral flowers, usually lasting only a day or so.

I have been waiting to catch this Flickingeria bantana flowering, always missing by a day or two to see a spent bloom. You can see more Flickingeria here

Hooray, you're back! I thought you'd gotten lost in the jungle, never to post again.

Yeah, kind of lost, but in work and not in the forest, unfortunately. Thanks for dropping a note.
