Stelis ciliolata

Stelis ciliolata
Just had to post one more picture of these unique flowers. They are small - each one is only 1.5 cm, but they have up to six flowers open at a time and bloom successively on rather long spikes. This orchid species is from Ecuador.

Published in the December, 2011, issue of Orkideer, the magazine of the Swedish Orchid Society in an article on orchid photography. The editor of the magazine, Karma Forester, has a site on Flickr, www.flickr.com/photos/myorchids/ and a blog, www.orchidkarma.com.

This was published again in on the front cover of the December 2012 issue of Orchids, the magazine of the American Orchid Society as the feature photo for an article showing some of the AOS's orchid photos of the week.

It is stunning and gorgous with that ermine hems around each petal, it deserves to be on magazine covers like any diva!
