Orchid bloom

Fragile

I didn't believe this was an orchid until the stall owner told me so, it was so tiny that a single blossom was smaller than my thumb. Very unique and exotic. Gaya Street, Kota Kinabalu, 2005.

smaller than your thumb? wah! that small? never seen it before too.

i wonder what name (i mean breed... orchid breed right?) is this type of orchid.

Don't know myself, maybe there are some orchid ethuists out there that might be able to tell you, it's size and perculiar colour was what attracted me in the first place.
