Each summer for the past few years, Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary is haunted by a ghost or two — ghost orchids that is.
When the first one was spotted a few years ago, someone set up a telescope aimed directly at the tiny flower that was at least 100 feet away from the boardwalk. My friend Carole and I took the shortcut to it. We took the path to the left. Eventually, more than a mile ahead, we came to the telescope and were rewarded with a view of the orchid, one that we were able to photograph with the help of the same telescope. Additional blooms appeared in 2012 and 2013, mostly in July and August.
