The Tiny Ram's Head Lady Slipper

The is the second of two Ram’s Head Lady Slippers I am posting. We were lucky that these were growing under a tree near the trail where we were able to access them without disturbing the environment they were growing in. How small is small? Take a look at this.

Pink Lady Slipper

Scott and I took a trip up to the Bruce Peninsula again last year. We had pretty poor weather but managed to get some good shots nonetheless. This is one of them.

Today is my 500th image posted! I had another shot lined up, but will save that for tomorrow.

I spent the past couple of days on the Bruce Peninsula which extends from Owen Sound, ON to Tobermory, ON and separates Georgian Bay and Lake Huron. While there I photographed many subjects, wild and rare orchids, the cliffs of Georgian Bay, sunset’s over Lake Huron and many other beautiful subjects.

This is a Showy (Queen’s) Lady Slipper.

Caledon Badlands

I spent a few days on the Bruce Peninsula last week photographing wild orchids, sunsets and other nice things.  On the way up, Scott and I stop at a couple of waterfalls along the way and this spot, the Caledon (or Cheltenham) Badlands.

Over the next little while I expect to post images from that trip.  Photos of Yellow Lady Slippers, Grass Pink Orchids, Showy Lady Slippers, sunsets, and waterfalls. Maybe a self portrait as well!
