Caption: Orchid flower (Cattleya percivaliana). One of the petals (pink and red, trumpet-shaped) is a specialised structure called a lip. This attracts pollinators to the flower, and acts as a landing platform. This is a mostly lithophytic orchid (one that grows on rocks). It is found in Venezuala in tropical South America. There are more than 30,000 species of orchids worldwide, many of which are grown as ornamental flowers.
