I took the dogs on their walk in the woods so I could go looking for these elusive flowers. I believe that they are in the Orchid family. They are protected and you are not allowed to disturb them in any way so I was very very careful.

For the first time I saw a white one:

I couldn't get any closer without walking on others:

more traditionally they are pink:

Wonderful lucky shots, Bambi!

And cool to know now, that the name can be translated 1:1 in english. We call it here "Frauenschuh" = Lady Slippers" :-).


They are protected and you are not allowed to disturb them in any way That's the same here - they are protected strictly.

Really nice shots Bambi,

I especially like the spiders thread? in shot three, totally natural, what a great find.

Nice. A guy I shoot with from time to time found a white one, too. How funny.
