Recently planted orchids grow inside a carefully controlled lab at Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden in Miami, Florida April 8, 2014. Inside a small bright lab, nestled behind sprawling Banyan trees in Miami's Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden, scientists and volunteers tend to tens of thousands of just-germinated orchids tucked in glass bottles. Fifty thousand more with long verdant leaves wait in a nearby nursery. In the coming weeks, crews in bucket trucks, usually used to fix power lines, will lift the fragile plants onto trees that line south Florida's roads, hoping they will take root and re-establish the blanket of millions of brightly colored flowers that once covered the state. The effort to reintroduce millions of orchids in Miami was inspired by a similar undertaking in Singapore that began in the mid-1990s, said Carl Lewis, who leads the Million Orchid Project as director of the botanic garden. A handful of the Florida species that Fairchild scientists are hoping to repopulate grow in limited numbers at the garden. Picture taken April 8, 2014.

A strong breeze blows as tourists from California take pictures of the setting sun while at the Vertigo and Moon Bar, situated on the 68th floor of Banyan Tree Bangkok in central Bangkok February 27, 2013. Bangkok, home to over 9 million people, is both one of the most popular tourist destinations in Southeast Asia and the capital of a country with one of Asia's widest rich-poor disparities. The chaotic and vibrant city is a mishmash of dizzying skyscrapers and colossal shopping malls jammed up against residential apartment buildings and homes. Crowded streets bustle with sidewalk vendors and motorbikes, and 7.5 million registered cars overwhelm roads designed for just 1.4 million. Picture taken February 27, 2013.

People pray at the shrine built around a banyan tree outside Yangon September 19, 2012. In a country with ancient cars on bad roads and insurance almost an unknown term, travel is a dangerous necessity. The tree gives protection for a safe journey. For over one hundred years, drivers of ox-carts, trucks, buses and cars bring their newly acquired vehicles to the Shwe Nyaung Pin Nat Shrine and its magic tree for blessing and protection. As Myanmar opens up, the most immediate physical changes are on its streets, as new cars begin plying roads long dominated by rattletrap buses and rusting taxis. Barely changed since the British colonial era in the early 20th century, some of the decades-old buses and trains are starting to be retired. Picture taken September 19, 2012.
