This photoset is from a hike through natural areas in Passaic county.  I saw a ton of orchids, including Isotria verticillata setting seed and Epipactis helleborine, Goodyera pubescens, Platanthera lacera, Platanthera psycodes, and their hybrid Platanthera ×andrewsii in flower.  The latter is the fortieth orchid I've seen in New Jersey.
