Is this normal?

I just got a Mule Ear Oncidium this afternoon. This is my first Oncidium, so I'm sorry if this is a stupid question. Anyhow, it looks good overall, but it has this spotted leaf-type thing growing, and I was just wondering if it's normal or what is it?

RE: Is this normal?

The spots on the leaf are caused by exposure to sunlight, common and occurs on various members of the Oncidium family of orchids.
