DRACULA ORCHID

While in San Francisco I had a chance to spend a little time at the conservatory at the golden gate park.  one of its prized orchids is the dracula orchid.  I am having fun playing with that new technique I learned a few days ago and took the blah picture (took with point and shoot zoomed in as much as possible) and came up with this:

DRACULA ORCHID



per wikipedia :  The strange name Dracula, literally means "little dragon", referring to the strange aspect of the two long spurs of the sepals.
