the cranefly orchid leaves of winter
Excellent photo in what looks like difficult lighting conditions.
JF, when I took photos of the leaves of this orchid, Klaus challenged me to find the flower. In my mind, I marked a spot where I knew there were several growing near my house in the woods just out back. Since I read that they bloom in August, as soon as the calendar turned the page, I started looking for them! Every day! By the time I noticed them, they were nearly finished blooming! Some had already faded. They are have some great camouflage.
SINIGAGLIASIERRA, thank you!
The blossoms look so delicate and fragile! Beautiful picture of this rare flower, Jean! Greetings, Anne
