Wishing you all a very Happy and Prosperous New Year 2011 ahead.

Regards

PS: The flower in the picture belongs to a very rare and endemic
orchid of Uttarakhand distributed in Pithoragarh. It is called
Flickingeria hesperis Seidnf.. The most interesting thing about it is,
one plant gives one flower in a year and the flower just blooms for a
single day. This is the type character of Flickingeria and hence it is
often refereed to as One Day Flower Orchid. So one has to be there on
the right day to find it in flowering condition.

You may consider this as Photo of the Year from myside.
