Flower Photography: Dancing Ladies Orchid



Among the easiest of orchids to grow, the "Dancing Ladies" are among the most popular. Members of the Oncidium family, the common name comes from the shape of the flower which resembles a lady with her arms outstretched on the top with a skirt-shaped lip below. With a slight breeze moving the blossoms, it looks like there is a whole troupe of dancers. ~ Susan Taylor

  5. That is one of my mama's favorite flower. I think because it is yellow and it does look like the lady is dancing.Thanks for the visit I do appreciate it.
