Pretty picture: Guarianthe aurantiaca

Except for 2013, I've gotten a photo of Guarianthe aurantiaca1 every year since I started going to the orchid shows: 2010, 2011, 2012, 2014, 2015.

I don't know if it's the same specimen every year or not, but it'd be cool if it were. (Why would that be cool? I . . . I don't know. It just would.)

The species also appears to be popular for breeding purposes; several of its offspring have shown up in previous years:

Laeliocattleya Rojo x Cattleya aurantiaca (2010)
Cattleya Confetti x C. aurantiaca (2011)
Guaricyclia Kyoguchi (2012)
Guarianthe x guatemalensis (2015)
Cattlianthe Jewel Box 'Orange' (2015)
