Orchid Spikes

One common aspect of the orchid spikes is that all vary in colour.
Another is that as flowers come out going up the spike sequentially
their colour darkens.  Ths phot shows colour difference in Common
Spotted Orch, and also, though not very clearly, that the RH spike
darkens a bit going up the spike.  I have hundreds of photos and it
would probably need a selection of 2 or 3 to show up the main changes
in one of the species
