Orchids of the Wierd

orchid I swear it looks like a crawdad! Cele and Eric came across this funky looking orchid in El Pantano, Santa Fe, a couple miles from our inn. I think the species is Coryantes maculata, an uncommon orchid known for liking acidic soil. Because of this, it often grows on top of ant hills and is pollinated by only one genus of bees. Talk about being picky!
