Here are some other orchids I managed to photograph while exploring here. There are many more but I only took photos of those within reach of my macro lens and those with flowers.
This one is an Oberonia species. Curious orchids they are, very tiny flowers produced by plants with succulent leaves.
It was growing on a dead branch barely touching the dry leaf litter on the ground.
A Cymbidium “ball” literally hanging by a thread (thin vine) about 10-15 meters above ground.
This was too far to get a good photo. I used my 105mm Sigma and cropped the pic. It’s most likely to be Cymbidium finlaysonianum, a widespread and relatively common species here.
Another Cymbidium, growing on the damp forest floor. The soft and pointed leaves (not tough and leathery) suggest that it could be C. bicolor, another widespread but less common species compared to C. finlaysonianum.
A big colony of Dendrochilum species in flower.
An unidentified orchid. Looks like a miniature Dendrobium species.
Another unidentified orchid. Could be a Trichoglottis.
Fallen Trichoglottis species.
Roots of a Trichoglottis on a tree. Same type as the fallen one in previous photo.
Besides orchids, also saw this large woody liana (jungle vine) in flower. It produced countless clusters of inflorescences.
The flowers attracted bees, ants and small butterflies.
Jungle vine in flower. Here is a separate entry I posted about this liana:
Also saw this plant growing on a tree. Could it be a Dischidia species?
I like the leaves, very interesting, like tiny carved shields.
Flowers of an unidentified small tree.
Flowers of a small plant growing on forest floor.
There were also many aroids, Begonias and Amorphorphallus species growing here but I didn’t take any photos of those.
This is the last and final part of 6 entries of my visit to this limestone hill. If you liked it, do leave a comment. Cheers!
