Sweet flower.

But is that brown spot on the leaf in the foreground scale? It caught my eye because I've been fighting it on a couple of my plants recently.

Little green 'man'? Exactly what part are you looking at Heather!?!
In the top petal (dorsal? what the heck is the terminology for Cyc's?) the bump is the eyes (or eyebrow?) the dark green is the mouth, and he's sort of floating in on those two sets of wings. See?

I'm pretty sure that'd be the lip. Cycs are one of those orchids that don't rotate 180 when they bloom.
