Came across this orchid at a florist stall. When I saw the arch-like structure in the flower, i thought at first it was plastic implanted by the florist for some purpose. On closer inspection, I realised it was part of the reproductive structure of the flower, likely 2 anthers in contact with each other and forming a ring-like arch. Seems like a cool idea for a  sudden wedding proposal, to offer flower and have a ring hidden within. ;)

Just shot with handphone. EXIF not available.

Just sharing so hope its of interest. Comments welcomed.
