The only time I ever saw an orchid in the wild was in the Everglades. This one is a beauty.

Great shots of such an unusual orchid. I don't think I've seen one shaped like this before. It's probably just me but in the bottom one I see a bear's (dog's?) face on a body with arms and brown legs stretched out.

Nice find and photo! The other day, I read something that said, we are still discovering new orchids on a regular basis.
