Leafless Beaked Ladies' Tresses

 Wild orchids on I-75!  Leafless Beaked Ladies' Tresses
(Sacoila lanceolata).  Also called Scarlet Ladies' Tresses.

 Large group of these showy terrestrial orchids seen in late May along the roadside of I-75, just south of Punta Gorda.
The above group photographed off exit 161.

Seen just by chance on the way to Babcock-Webb WMA.

    You provide excellent information for going further in wildlife pursuits!
