¡Super enhorabuena! Estas orquideas siempre han sido mis favoritas. Las encontraba cerca del instituto donde hice secundaria, paseando por el monte. La verdad es que en nuestra zona mediterranea crecen orquideas super bonitas :-)

Congratulations Isabela, your beautiful orchid has been chosen Spotting of the Day! The flowers of the mirror orchid so closely resemble female bees that amorous males are fooled into attempting to mate with them and the orchid is pollinated through a process of pseudo-copulation.
