Orchid hunter

Orchids have a reputation of requiring all day hikes to find,

And even then, there is no guarantee they are in bloom.

Can you guess what kind of orchid?

Here's a case of one jumping out to greet me.

Quite literally it was reaching ten feet out from its epiphytic base on the tree.


And on a sidewalk no less.
