Cascading orchid

Cascading orchid, originally uploaded by maxful.
In their native habitat Phalaenopsis (Moth orchids) have a pendant habit. They cling to rocky outcrops and tend to flower downward. Years of cross breeding and careful staking have now bred hybrids that stand upright on our baby grands and show benches. Poor butterfly. I draw you as you as the heavens made you.
