Paphiopedilum delenatii

This is a species orchid. Considered one of the more common orchids, it's quite cute, relatively easy to grow, likes it moist, but not too moist, you let it just about dry out then water again, decent lighting (not bright sun, but not total shade all the time). Anyway, I got this one around Christmas, and it just bloomed this week. It's actually quite large, I think, for a delenatii - from petal tip to petal tip the width is 7.1 cm.

Anyway, enjoy!
