Phalaenopsis orchid...

...my favorite of today's postings. Best viewed in the large size.

 

Known as the moth orchid, the Phalaenopsis is noted for its arching spray of flowers and its thick green leaves. Phalaenopsis are very popular not only because of their beauty, but because of their ease of care and their extremely long blooming period, often lasting many months.
