|After awhile you start to ignore the small Pink Fingers
when your walking, looking for bigger game. We had read that there
was a slightly different one in this area, so we kept our eyes open for a
different pink fingers. We looked at so many, it was tedious.
But at last we found one that was truly different. The labellum was
beautifully red, so different from the normal Pink Finger.
