Uttara Kannada wildflowers

 Uttara Kannada is a district in Karnataka state, endowed with dense forests and pristine beaches. Just after the rains, the forests are utterly beautiful with different kinds of wild orchids. The Seethe Dande, or Foxtail orchid is one of them.
The Draupadi Dande, Aerides orchid has sparser blooms, but is no less enchanting.
My thanks to Mrs.Nesbitt for starting the ultra-interesting ABCWednesday. Unbelievably, I have lost the other photos and have to ask for forgiveness from the understanding Roger.I hope I can unearth some for the next post.
