Oh Yes!  Another favourite of mine - after orchids, of course!  I can just imagine little fairy feet in those lovely slippers. :)   Beautiful image!

Wonderful image of this "double" flowering plant of the yellow Lady Slippers. Your 4 image stack worked perfectly to keep them in focus while keeping the background from being distracting. Beautiful work.

A wonderful shot- two beauties-crystal clear. They are so different from what we have here- ours are pink and white...at least the few I've seen. Had no idea they could be so dark as well.
