Oncidium excavatum


The flowers of the Oncidium genus come in shades of yellow, red, white and pink. The petals are often ruffled on the edges, as is the lip. The lip is enormous, partially blocking the small petals and sepals.


This picture was taken yesterday in the Singapore Botanical Gardens. It is about 1cm in length only.
