    This past weekend, I went to the Atlanta, GA area to photograph some precocious pink ladyslippers. While most of their colony mates were still in earlier stages of bud, these few were stand-outs from the crowd.

    It's too bad that there are no slipper orchids native to Florida, but I guess Florida can't have all the lovely orchids.

    Very nice and from what looks to be quite a substantial colony.

    As always, you find things most of us don't get to see. Thanks!
