This time it’s a white Pink Lady’s Slipper. It is the same species but without the pink.  I usually have to visit Northern Maine to find these, and when I do they are in profusion.  But happening upon them locally in their fine whites is less frequent.White-Lady's-Slipper-with-pink,-starflower-anmd-Canada-mayflower-052614-900WebWe’ve got a pink Pink Lady’s Slipper, a Starflower and a Canada Mayflower keeping company.  You may also notice that my CX-7 has photobombed in the distance. 🙂

Alright, Mr. DeMille….I’m ready for my close up.White-Lady's-Slipper-052614-600WebI haven’t forgotten that I owe you the other waterfall and there are a couple more pink Lady’s Slippers to come as well.  I’ll be back.

  2. So where’s your portrait of Norma Desmond? Do we only get to see the lady’s slipper and not her face?

  3. Aah the Lady in White is so lovely. You have probably written the answer to my question at sometime but I would like to know not the precsise area but what kind of area. Are these wonderful wildflowers found on private land, state or national parks, lumber company land, or nature preserves owned by Nature Conservancy or National Audubon Society? And if it is prudent not to reveal even that for fear collectors will dig and destroy then by all means don’t even think about giving out any information.

    • Thanks, Yvonne. I go on all the types you mentioned with the exception of private…unless it’s in my backyard. 🙂 In this case I was on town owned land protecting our water supply. It’s a pine woods.

  4. Holy cow~ I’d sure love to see that lady slipper growing next to the starflower and Canada Mayflower I find in the woods here! Thank you for taking us into this special place with you 🙂

  5. A tough feat to pull off, Steve — wide angle of flowers on a forest floor where the blooms are recognizable. No one does it better!

    I’m still laughing about the photo-bomb. Steve if you hadn’t pointed it out, I would never have noticed! Love the line-up today. Now I understand why you have to lie down to take so many of your pictures – I need to start doing the same thing but as I’ve seen 4 snakes this week, do you think it’s wise?

    Steve, I like the context shots a lot but the close up is a stunner. I think it will make the movie.
