Nicely done Phil! I like the look of the first one with what looks like some nice soft backlight.

Very Nice Phil. I am finding hundreds of them in the eastern Upper Peninsula on the Hiawatha National Forest. This lady slipper though is the Pink or Stemless Lady Slipper, (Cypripedium acaule) and called stemless not for the flower but that the leaves come right out of the ground without a stem. Good find if in the lower peninsula.

thanks rick,,there were certainly many ,many yellows..not many pink..did find some pitcher plants and columbine..the rams heads were certainly few and far between..really not far from your neck of the woods..actually just west the mighty mac bridge..did get notified by a r.grouse who"s young were near..and spotted a merlin chanting..all and all was a great day. the bugs were relentless if it were not for the 20 mph wind keeping them off of me id of been carried away.
