Caption: Orchid flower (Lockhartia oerstedii). The red and yellow petal (upper centre) is a specialised structure called the lip. The lip helps to attract pollinators to the flower and provides them with a place to land. This orchid is found in tropical Central America and northern South America. It is an epiphytic orchid (one that grows in trees). There are more than 30,000 species of orchids worldwide, many of which are grown as ornamental flowers.
