Nice photo but I can't help feeling that the normal coloured form is much more beautiful. Lovers of albino paphs, please don't shoot me!
The type form is definitely more colorful and shiny.

But for collectors of albums like myself, we appreciate the sheer beauty of the shades of greens and whites in locations where those colors are absent. Almost like they are purer in some sense. Much like seeing an albino white deer in the dark forest.

Or for that matter, a unicorn lol

I see. Unfortunately unicorns are a little bit hard to grow!
