In their quest to identify the pollinator of the ghost orchid for the first time, a team of explorers, photographers, and filmmakers spent three summers standing waist-deep in alligator- and snake-laden water, swatting air blackened by mosquitoes, and climbing to sometimes nausea-inducing heights. They came away with a startling new discovery - and an even deeper love for Florida's wildest wetlands - revelations that may help to conserve both the endangered orchid and its shrinking home.
