More photos, I have two more to post. The flowers were fading and fruits developing, so I am scratching my head and creating a bald spot.

It's so exciting to come across orchids in their natural habitats. Beautiful.

Very interesting to see what people have growing in their "back yards" across the world, particularly taken by the Eulophia (possibly because it reminds me of the Phaius which I also like)? :?

I don't get paid, I pay for this out of my pocket. Unfortunately getting or receiving financial help for orchid research and conservation is a stone wall. But I have learned along time ago, to go it alone. I get a monthly pay check from the Army, so I have been able to pay for all this out of my pocket. No regrets...................

It is unbelievable, some areas that I have been too, did not know that, the pretty flowers in their back yards were orchids.
