Patterns of Phalaenopsis Orchids

The repetition of similar shapes in the petals of the orchids below make a fine pattern in four different colours.These phalaenopsis flowers would make magnificent gift-wrap paper, prints or the cover of a magazine or a book.

All the plants below were posing coquettishly at this orchid nursery called "The World Of Phalaenopsis" waiting for me to capture their stunning patterned images.

    @ p3chandan - you know what happened to my phalaenopsis which I bought last year from "The World Of Phalaenopsis" in Gentings? The snails got to them when I was in New Zealand. Sigh...
