Orange Crested Orchid (Platanthera cristata)
This nice looking little crested orchid was in perfect shape for a photo. Most of the time, the flowers are shriveled at the bottom, open in the middle, and still unopened at the top. The short spur behind the flower is the best identification tool for this late summer bloomer.
