Stanhopea oculata (flower)

Stanhopea oculata

Stanhopea oculata

[ Stanhopea oculata flower cluster ]

The flowers remind me of hummingbirds in flight.  If you are lucky enough, you can actually hear the flower bud "pop" open and witness the flower blossom as it opens.  You can find out more about Stanhopeas on the New Hampshire Orchid Society Stanhopea pages.
