On my recent vacation native orchid photography trip I've been to a few cemeteries, parks and local preserves in Connecticut, Eastern Long Island, Rhode Island and Cape Cod. I'll keep the plant pictures on separate pages so it's easier for me to setup and for you to download and view. Enjoy! If you can accurately identify any of the plants that I've labeled as natural hybrids, I'd be happy to hear back if they are correctly identified or not. Thanks.
