Lady Slipper

Here the rare Lady Slipper Orchid can be seen up close. The name calceolus derives from the Latin for 'shoe', and refers to the slipper like appearance of the pouch. Here the flower was partially lit creating some beautiful light on the surrounding petals. Taken with a Nikon 105mm Micro.
