Creature 315: Peristeria elata

Another Orchid

It's about time I had another lazy day, so let's have another orchid. Today it is Peristeria elata.

It is commonly known as the dove orchid, because it sort of looks like a dove.

The dove orchid is native to central America and South America above the equator.
