Wild Orchids
Created by


176 participants 1,187 spottings

The ideal spotting would include a close up of the flower, a clear shot of the leaves, a picture of the whole plant, a picture of the plant in its surroundings and a habitat shot of the overall area it was found in (the plant need not be visible in this) BUT if you only have one shot, please still include it! Add as much detail as you can regarding what they are growing on or in, the type of vegetation, what the light was like where they grow and any details on the annual climate of the area.
