Triple antennae

Triple antennae

Back to some pictures from the ďorchids: A MOMENTĒ exhibit at the Smithsonianís Hirshhorn Museum. I havenít been there for a while, so Iím sure I have missed some marvelous orchids, but having visited it seven times, I imagine Iíve done enough ;-). Sadly, or maybe luckily so I donít go take even more pictures of orchids, the exhibit is about ready to close.

I had photographed one of these unusual orchids on my first visit to the exhibit, but this picture gives a better idea of what the entire flower looks like.
