:p :p :p

Your new camera is really a delight, Leslie ...razor sharp details! Although, I can't decide whether I actually want to get that close to the fairrie? 😁
However, had I been a fly or some other insectoid polinator, I would probably have fallen madly i love with those dark, dark eyes with the heavy eyelids and the seductive, green eyeshadow! 😍😍

I don't know the pollinator, hence the expression 'fly or some other insectoid pollinator' ;)

It is quite a micro world we rarely see in the perspective of the pollinator, which I think is a fly of sorts.

With so many colors, hairs and 'party flavors', the pollinators must be dizzy from the visual feast, falling into the flower's trap of rapture or death. It's like going into a night club with promise of fun and dates, and getting trap in a maze where you may not come out alive. Quite a macabre genus!

You have such a way with words to describe such a beautiful flower!

My longest lasting Paph. flower was a P. fairrieanum that started in early December and finally crashed in mid-March. Hasn't done that since, I guess conditions were perfect for flower longevity that year!
