Alien Orchid-Hawaii Spawned

Its WEdnesday night and I finally can find some time to write a little note and attach it to this wonderful flowering plant that I believe is a type of orchid. I have no documentation and was taking hundreds of photos while walking the path of this lush and very moist tropical reserve outside of Hilo, HAwaii. This was one of the more interesting species and really looks almost alien in color and nature but so complex in its structure and design. I am sent back into the past when I walked this path and couldn't move more than a foot at a time before I had to take another photo. This is definitely one of my favorites.

Aloha from Kauai!

I've never seen this myself, however, it reminds me of the beginnings of a ginger plant(red ginger, in particular, but it's not red...grin)...

Whatever it's eye-catching and lovely! God bless...Dava
