terrestrial orchid, inflorescence about 5' tall
I spotted this while hiking in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. I know it's an orchid but not sure of the genus. I think it's Eulophia.
Hermosa orquidea por favor agregala ala mission Orchids of the Worldhttp://www.projectnoah.org/missions/9525...
Great spot! Definitely Eulophia and looks very much like one of the paler forms of E.horsfallii.
I heard that they are mimicking wasps and bees (mainly the thorax UV-coloring)
like a kind of butterlfly or a mantis from the front ;)
what animal are you thinking?
looks beautiful, but also a little bit terrible, like an animal
