Splendid selective focus on this beautiful orchid!!
At first I thought I saw an insect diving right into the flower's center. :-)

@Steven: It is a member of the bee orchid family, all of which attempt to pollinate by impersonating insects in order to attract other insects of the same type to them. An incredible example of evolution by natural selection. They do have the fallback option of self pollination if this fails though.
What a beautiful orchid! I have never seen one like that before. Beautiful color! It definitely looks like a bumble bee!
