This photo captured a beautiful Crucifix Orchid which is one of my favorite flowers in a local garden.
Crucifix orchids are native to the Caribbean and Americas where their habitat varies from muggy jungles to dry tropical jungles. Each flower has a three-lobed lip next to the arched column resembling a crucifix, hence the name. Crucifix orchids not grown in favorable conditions won't bloom and will have lanky and weak stems.
