    The large dark brown markings are nice change to the otherwise typical "yellow Oncidium" look.

    The flowers look impressively big for an Oncidium, how large are they?

    Looks like a classic "fisherman's photo" to me - always hold the fish out in front of you so it looks bigger.

    They’re thhhhhhis big! The lip is about 3 cm wide.

    It’s a really dark brown red, almost looks black.
