Nearly Wordless Wednesday – Calypso Orchid

I found a Calypso bulbosa var. occidentalis (Calypso Orchid, or Venus’s Slipper) the other day! It’s the Pacific Northwest’s only native orchid, and is only found in undisturbed areas with lots of thick, moist moss. It’s a terrestrial orchid, not an epiphytic orchid. We don’t have those, unfortunately. I’ll let the photo do the rest of the talking.
