Pretty picture: Paphiopedilum Lynleigh Koopowitz

Lynleigh Koopowitz is Paphiopedilum delenatii x P. malipoense, according to its tag at the show. I was so pleased that someone had included the ancestry information that for a long time I was afraid to look it up, for fear that they'd gotten it wrong. Eventually, though, I steeled myself, went to Google, and -- it's accurate. So I love you, whoever it is who tagged this orchid. Bring more orchids to the show next year. Bring all the orchids to the show next year, even.

As for the flower itself, I suppose it's okay. Doesn't do much for me, but that might be the photo more than the flower. Some flowers are not improved by back-lighting.
