2 million objects digitized! That's pretty cool.TWO MILLIONTH OBJECT DIGITIZED!!!

In June 2016 we let you know our office hit 1 million objects digitized. It took us a little over 3 years to hit that mark. Now, less than 2 years later, we’ve piled on another million and have just hit our TWO MILLIONTH object digitized! We're making progress but we’re still just getting started!

And what object had the honor of being our two-millionth? This beautiful orchid from our ongoing project to digitize Smithsonian Gardens living orchids collection.

This plant, the two-edged Laelia (Laelia anceps) from Mexico, Guatemala, and Honduras belongs to an unusually hardy family. Species have adapted to compete in crowded landscapes and can withstand harsh environments where few other plants can survive.

In early November, Mexicans celebrate the Day of the Dead to honor their dead relatives. Grave-sites are elaborately decorated with brightly colored and highly fragrant Laelia anceps orchids ranging in color from pale lavender to white.

In addition to objects digitized at Smithsonian Gardens, the road to this milestone has also included team members and objects from these museums:

- Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History
- Cooper Hewitt
- Smithsonian's Freer and Sackler Galleries
- Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture
- National Museum of American History
- National Air and Space Museum, Smithsonian Institution

... with many more to come! Thank you to all museums, object handlers and business partners that made this possible!
