they are all orchids, other than the 3rd picture who was a bush near the lake (don't know the name of the flower) and the fifth that is a type of ginger flower. The hanging flower is a tropical orchid you can find near waterfall.

I was name after the flowers in your 3rd picture, I think it's called Caesalpinia pulcherrima.

Wow, what a nice flower to be named after ;-) and pulcherrima means very beautiful in latin.
