Dendrobium Orchid

Dendrobium sabahense


This tiny Orchid was found on the same tree a Pit Viper was resting, it has fallen from the tree above, and has managed to 'grow' on the small tree and there was a single flower left on its flower stalk. I didn't even noticed the tiny Orchid on the first day I found this Snake as I was more focused on Snake but when I showed the Snake to PN Ranger ChunXingWong 2 days later, he noticed the tiny Orchid while we were taking turns to take the pic. We had lots of fun taking pics of both the Snake and Orchid together.

Nice spotting Albert! I had a feeling it was a Dendrobium. A quick search in my book and I found it.
