Charles, you are a genius. Wonderful Photo! Mine has never flowered! Maybe this spring. Common name is dagger orchid in reference to the leaf shape.

Note from Native orchids of Australia by David L. Jones.

Beautiful! You must have a lot of orchids.

RE: Dendrobium pugioniforme

Fantastic. Hard to imagine it's only bean sized.
When taking photos at orchid shows, I always wish there was a ruler, to show, how small or big the blooms are.
