Lady Slipper

This was a diminutive Lady Slipper seen along Whiskey Creek in the Siskiyous of Oregon. It was right on the edge of a bog that was chock full of Darlingtonia. It was a lovely place to botanize, but certainly a messy one from the perspective of photography. I'm not sure I will ever be able to get rid of the dirt stains from my jeans after getting down low to take photos. The color of this orchid blends in very well to the background colors of the bog, which I found to be intriguing.
