White, Sparkling Angels in a Flower!

Podangis dactylocerus. One of a myriad of African spurred orchids, typically pollinated by moths. They are white so the pollinators can find them at night! Shown here is a close-up of one of the swarm of 1 cm flowers that covered this plant. These little flowers have a sparkling texture like diamond dust!
