So you think you can dance?

ABC Wednesday's letter of the week is D.
D is for Dishita and dishita loves dancing. I am a trained indian classical dancer and i enjoy any kind of dancing. But have you heard of the Dancing orchids aka. Oncidium Orchids?  I happen to see them first time during my recent trip to India. I believe it was a small nursery in Munnar, Kerala. The beauty of these orchids is they resemble dancing dolls and hence the name dancing orchids. For more information on those visit here. So here is my picture of the dancing orchids.

I am not sure if the readers would be able to zoom it and see them dancing. This is one of the moments when i so badly feel the need of mastering my clicking techniques. Anyways, so below is an enhanced version of the flower found from web and similarly you can find more orchids here.

Aren't those amazing?
