Caption

Darwin's Orchid, Comet Orchid, or Christmas Orchid, Angraecum sesquipedale, endemic to Madagascar, with a very long nectar tube or spur extending 10 inches behind the flower, with the closed distal end filled with nectar. This flower was correctly predicted by Charles Darwin to have co-evolved with a sphinx moth having an equally long proboscis.
