exotic Oncidium Orchid

We received this orchid from our supplier with a long stem and just one bloom and thought that maybe they made a mistake.  Was this the Charlie Brown Christmas tree of orchids?
 It turns out this is an Oncidium Mendenhall 'Hildos' -- a seasonal orchid that only has one bloom but is quite dramatic when it opens:
 It has about a 5 inch wingspan -- wow!
