Look To The Sky
Look to the Sky: This photo of a Moon Orchid Flower (Phalaenopsis amabilis) was taken in Pomfret Connecticut in March 2012. This species is usually found in the eastern to southeastern regions of Asia. It was first discovered on a small island off the east coast of New Guinea by a native botanist in the 1600's. This flower is also known as the "Flower of Charm" in Indonesia. In China the orchid often stands for refinement, friendship, perfection, all things feminine, elegant and noble.
