Default Some Pictures From Corkscrew Swamp

I visited on Jan 3, 2021 with my husband, two girls and my parents. Due to COVID, it was quite nice as they were limiting visitors and we could walk around by ourselves. If anyone could identify the orchids in a few of the pics (maybe there are 2 types?) I'd appreciate knowing what I was looking at!

No idea, but that's sure a fine egret!

That was a great trip! The white-flowered plant is Crinum americanum. The plant in the crotch of the tree, and in the photo with the red bromeliad, is Epidendrum nocturnum. I don't know what the others are. I think you photographed 3 orchids.

So cool to explore swamps! Crocodiles sneaking around, not so cool.

Good to know - we've always just called them "swamp lilies"

Thanks! I looked it up and would really like to see it in bloom. They apparently can bloom in January, so I'll have a chance another year. I'm not going to a Florida swamp in summer!!

The first orchid (photo #2, in the crotch of a tree) is either Epidendrum nocturnum or Epidendrum amphistomum. The second orchid (photo #3, near red bromeliad) is Epidendrum rigidum. The third orchid (photo #4) I am fairly certain is Polystachya concreta. If possible, higher resolution photos would help a lot with the IDs.

Yes, using a camera phone isn't the greatest... I figured I could tell which it was after looking at photos online, reading descriptions, etc. Apparently I'm not the only one that can't tell them apart because I found a few different sites comparing the two, leading me to no real conclusion. I guess I'll just have to go back again

Just from the boardwalk. There were quite a few other orchids you can see easily from there too, including the Super Ghost Orchid, but you can't make that one out at all in the pictures I took with my phone.
