Wandering destination: Namdapha NP (part 3: Flora)
Although I saw and I shot small number of flower varieties at Namdapha, most of them were first-timers for me. It was not a flowering season in Namdapha in Nov 2011. I am uploading photo of almost every flower I shot. Some are identified and some not. I request readers to please ID rest.
