    Default Identification of an Orchid Species

    Please help me to identify this orchid species. It is established on a blueberry tree. I did not plant it; instead, I got it in my garden by default. Thank you.

    Ah, that is true, but I love Arizona, a fantastic place for photographers. Once I found a giant dried tree trunk sitting on the sand, and I shot it with both Fujichrome and Agfapan (B&W), it works well. But I guess I am not allowed to post such a photo here.

    Why not? There is a photography section in this forum called "A Kodak Moment: not necessarily plants..." where there are lots of interesting photography.
