Caption: Orchid flowers (Encyclia maculosa, also known as Prosthechea guttata). This cluster contains numerous flowers sprouting off a central stem. The central yellow and white bit is a specialised petal called a lip. The lip attracts pollinators to the flower. This orchid is found growing in trees (it is said to be epiphytic) in the mountains of Mexico. There are more than 30,000 species of orchids worldwide, many of which are grown as ornamental flowers.
