Greenhood orchid

This photo is by Gordon Smith. He comments:

I hadn't seen a greenhood orchid for years until we came across several patches of them in Cathedral Rock National Park. We had them on our property about 8 years ago, but, even after keeping a close eye out for them, have yet to see them again.

The photo reminds me of how little I know of New England's vegetation. I had never heard of a greenhood orchid!
