    Let's see who can get the most correct or as close to the correct answer as possible. Some are species and some are hybrids. Some have been posted and some have not. I don't want it to be too easy so they are slightly out of focus:evil:

    You will ask, "What do I win?" The answer, "A title- StaminodeKing"!!

    What makes you so sure? With a little more focus we might have a new international best seller!

    You are correct Orchid Boy but looking back at the picture I can see the gonads (pollenia) are in better focus then the stami!

    Not too shabby Hera. You got #1,#2, #3, #4 and #5 right! #6 you managed to pick out one of the great grandparents and #7 you got one of the parents!

    Nupe, try again:p Sorry about your poor health Angela. Maybe a good romance novel and a warm fire will help put your head back together (and stop looking at my pictures you naughty girl!)

    It is a hybrid Gary but not that one. Notice what I told Hera, "#6 you managed to pick out one of the great grandparents"
    I admit LMB, I was taken back by the initial response as well!! I was in tears laughing so hard.

    SK, you are a hard task master! Being a Sunday, perhaps a few hours in the lab (I have a few pods that have ripened, spicerianum, philippinense, and wilhelminae), then open a bottle of wine and go through a bunch of orchid pics and try and scrutinize their nether regions (I will need the wine to reduce my embarrassment as I am sure to feel oddly perverted)
