As others have said it is often impossible to be certain of an orchid identification from a single photogragh, especially with hybrids, but this is almost certainly a Trichocentrum or Trichocidium. Probably a hybrid but it appears very similar to Trichocentrum (formerly Oncidium) lanceanum, one of the 'mule ear' Oncidiums. The colors seem unusually vivid but I think that is due to bright back-lighting. It would help to see the whole plant, but I'd be surprised if it was anything else.
