    Very nice find. That is the Vanda family. First time I have been able to see them in the wild.

    Yes it's always cool to find wild orchids. I see the occasional native terrestrial and saw a couple Enc. tampensis (educated guess) out of bloom in FL a couple years ago, but I'll never see anything like what RBJ can find in Sarawak. Awesome.
