I’m glad you finally found one for this spring.
There are some two miles from home (much closer than this thirty mile away neighbor) that I hope to visit this weekend.
Those things are just to funny looking to be real. I have a pair of down booties that I wear around camp in cold weather, and they are identical.
Aren’t you the style hound? I guess lady’s slippers aren’t just for ladies anymore.
Wordless Wednesday, indeed. No words are sufficient to convey how I feel about your sharing nature’s art masterpiece.
Sharing is made all the more enjoyable when one receives a comment like that, Wally. Thank you!
Wordless Wednesday, I am speechless!
The flower speaks for itself. Thanks, Peter.
Such a lovely composition. I have to say, here our yellow lady slippers grow in such tangled habitat, I cannot imagine getting such a clear shot of one.
They are not native in my part of New England and this was planted by the former property owner, he and his wife donated the land to Mass. Audubon, so the spot was selected for their success. Sometimes choosing the right perspective and a shallow depth of field offers a bit of isolation in all the chaos. Happily not needed here. Thanks, Melissa!
All true, but sometime I’d love to take you in the field here to see what I mean! 😀
Wow! It doesn’t get better than this!
Absolutely gorgeous. I love lady’s slippers, and I love these yellow ones even more because I’ve yet to find any.
Thanks, Todd! I believe they do grow in North Carolina so you may happen upon some one of these days.
Finally, I remembered: those things that look like laces on the slippers are bracts, not leaves. I always look forward to you photos of these, and you never disappoint.
I am glad this one pleased you, Linda. They are such unique and lovely flowers with their own special morphology.
Thank you, M.B.!
How nice, for me it is stil the most beautiful orchid of all. Great shot Stephen.
Thank you, Rudi. Of the naturally occuring orchids I agree with you. The hybridized ones are quite beautiful but I prefer those that are left for nature to decorate.
Wow, gorgeous photo, Steve!
Very nice Steve! Beautiful Image! Enjoyed seeing it!
