Dear Friends,
 
Attached flowers were seen on a big tree (looks like as mango) I am not sure where these are Orchids of some kind. Pl Identify.
 
The photo was taken at Kalimpong, last month.
 
Thanks,
 
Narendra Joshi

Hello Narendraji,
 
The flowers are not of any epiphyte but the tree itself, Aesculus assamica. Yes, it has Aeschynanthus sp. as epiphyte on it (cascading with narrow opposite leaves in the background).
 
Regards,
