Just 15 minutes detour from the main road, we reached this pristine mountain stream in South Thailand. The cool caressing creek, the ceaseless cries of the cicadas .... and I am a child again.
Actually Habenaria rhodocheila is supposed to be pink flowering and some taxonomists have a new name for this yellow form - H. xanthocheila. This is the first time I have seen the yellow form which is more uncommon than the pink ones. Both of them are seasonal and will go dormant for a few months each year, leaving behind a smallish tuber in the ground.
