Day 147 — End of a Run

It's the last bloom left on the phalaenopsis, and it actually began to wilt just hours after this photograph. Such a long, weary branch sustaining tenuous life. Notice that the tips of the horn-like tendrils at the bottom of the flower have darkened, signaling its imminent collapse.
