Paphiopedilum curtisii Lady's Slipper Orchid Flower

Common Name: Lady's Slipper Orchid
Species: Paphiopedilum curtisii

These Paph. orchids remind me so much of pitcher plants, especially ones with colouration such as this. I love how the dorsal sepal of the flower has a purple striped pattern while the petals are speckled.
