Orchiadaceae, Encyclia caicensis, Parrot Cay, Turks & Caicos

April 1, 2009

Turks & Caicos native orchid, incredibly fragrant flowers on a chest-high spike, can be found growing on the edge of the beach in sand and limestone.

The photo that I took (below) was used at www.orchidspecies.com, an incredible and extensive resource documenting the orchid species of the world.
