Pretty picture: Paphiopedilum NOID

I don't really like anything about this one, though it's possible that the photography is mostly responsible. The top petal is a little too broad, or round, or something (who decided that roundedness is a quality we want in orchids anyway?), and it's also my opinion that mustard is the only thing that should ever be mustard yellow.

Perhaps this one was left untagged was because it was too ashamed to identify itself.

I like the broad form but the color leaves a tremendous amount to be desired.

Your snark always brings a smile to my face. I've always been beyond confused about why all orchid groups specify roundness as a plus in their standards.
