Maybe Grandma will still pay if we knock over the pots.

Grands don't get to access orchid growing space without supervision. Grandma ain't stoopid.

I can hear the photo!

Before I thoroughly gave up on giving my orchids any time outdoors (eastern exposure in the spring, before the Florida rains pick up...also when the southeastern lubber nymphs decide to feast on the leaves of my oncidiums) I had an interesting evening that involved a possum knocking over my Onc. Ruth's Rainbow - thankfully very prolific with roots because he/she wanted to sit down exactly where the pot was.

I went outside, had to actively shoo the possum away, and spent about 10 minutes picking up leca from the patio before I gave up.

Yes, I have a photo...sadly, I can't share it because I'm still new.

Try uploading the photo... while supposedly it takes 5 posts to be able to do it, I have seen them from newer members. Click on Go Advanced, then Manage Attachments. You should get a pop-up that lets you select photos, and then upload. (Be sure your browser allows pop-ups on this website)

I'll give it a shot! 🤞 This was February (which counts as spring in Florida). I will reiterate: this possum targeted that orchid with surgical precision, and I had to get waaay too close to shoo it away. It was positively cat-like. If I had known it was going to react with such nonchalance, I would have taken video.

What a mess!
Photo is fine. The sideways presentation is a "feature" of the old software that the Board, especially happens on direct uploads from phone. If you can download the photo, rotate it, save, and rotate back that usually fixes the problem. But all of us are pretty good at looking at things sideways too.
