Lady's Slipper Orchid

Lady's Slipper Orchid
Paphiopedilum haynaldianum

For the last several months this site has been relying on outtakes and archive materials as it has every winter of its existence. The folder I have been using is called “To Be Used 2011” and it has gotten so I don’t even want to look in there again. So a new folder has been started with 2012 replacing the 2011. Today’s Orchids were photographed in California and were growing outside in kind of a lean-to greenhouse. It was a nice collection of unusual species. All of these photos were shot with the Nikon D700 and 60mm nikkor-micro lens.

Since it is Sunday again here is a bonus snap of an unknown Orchid. The color scheme and design of this flower gave it an almost scary look.
