New Polystachya caespitifica in bloom

Polystachya caespitifica is one of those flowers I have a lot of difficulty photographing. It is about 3/8 of an inch across and white. I have seen better, but after three sessions and quite a few photos, I am going to give it a rest.

I have only had the plant for a month and it was in spike then. It grows in Kenya and northern Tanzania in mountain forests. It is cool to warm growing and is fragrant. Now that the buds have opened, I will repot it. The sphagnum in the pot now is quite broken down.
