Orchids that make you smile, which one is your favorite?

When I see a beautiful orchid, in full bloom, my first reaction is to blink... to help focus my eyes on what I'm seeing.  Then, I usually smile and sigh... not a big sigh, a small sigh, but a sigh nonetheless.  How do you react when you see a beautiful orchid flower? (I am assuming you like beautiful things, like flowers, otherwise you wouldn't be reading this post). 

In other words, you can't work around orchid flowers and not be affected (I still get confused with the difference between affect and effect) by their exquisiteness ... yeah, that's the word!  Orchids are exquisite and just being around them makes you feel good.  Some orchid flowers take your breath away more than others.  From hundreds of orchids I see each day, here are a few orchids, most of them Phalaenopsis that not only take my breath away, they make you smile.  (Don't forget to smile as you look at the photos  :)  Orchids make you smile and take your breath away don't they?  At least they do in person, where you can touch them.  I don't know if the photos have the same affect - enjoy!

Phals have always been my favorite. They are very easy to care for. Although always reccomended for the novice,I still enjoy them most because of the long bloom cycles. Just beautiful. Nice pictures by the way!
