Caption: Orchid flower (Cymbidiella pardalina, also known as C. rhodochila). The red and black-spotted structure is a specialised petal called a lip. It attracts pollinators and provides them with a landing platform. This is an epiphytic orchid (one that grows in trees). It is found in Madagascar. There are more than 30,000 species of orchids worldwide, many of which are grown as ornamental flowers.
