Fragrant Ladies'-tresses (Spiranthes odorata)
Fragrant ladies'-tresses growing in a prairie on the edge of the Fakahatchee Strand. A simple key to identifying this orchid from other ladies'-tresses - just put your nose to it and you will know instantly if it is fragrant or not. Just watch out for the expertly camoflaged crab spiders that are sometimes found among the flowers!
