Dear Friends, this pretty orchid is found in the red pine forests and is called the pink lady slipper. They like the acidic ground and shady light that the forest provides, and these conditions make subtle sunlight for flower photography. I got lucky as this particular bloom was very vivid in color and had a bee perched on top, the only drawback to these conditions are the wood ticks that also thrive here.. til Tomorrow MJ
