Just to add, Oberonias are not uncommon on trees adjacent to rivers in
their respective areas. One of the most common to be found in such
habitat in north to north eastern stretch of India is Oberonia
ensiformis!! This species also corresponds with the huge size of this
orchid in the pic. They bear orange flowers. I am not a professional
taxonomist :( to confirm but this is not ensiformis.
