Caption: Orchid flowers (Phalaenopsis mariae). The lower petal of each flower has a complex shape and red spots. This specialised petal is called the lip. It attracts pollinators and provides them with a landing platform. This orchid is found in the tropical forests of the Philippines and Borneo. 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.
