This year we were very fortunate to finally find a solitary specimen of this rare lady slipper variant, where the sepals and petals are a string bright yellow, rather than the usual rich amber colour.

Composite image merged from 8K video file.

Nikon Z9 & Irix 150mm macro.

Thanks for stopping by, have a great WE.

As impressive is the effort finding it, is also your knowledge. Fine shot Sinuhe.
Make your life spectacular!

Thanks David, all credit goes to my wife for locating these rare beauties - I just tag along and take care of our Setter lass ;)

Thank you Axel - I would have preferred a somewhat less direct view...but the slope on which this orchid was...was so steep...that I was glad to secure this shot - without any serious mishap.

What a team you two make in the search and capture of these rare beauties, Sinuhe!  Lovely find and image.

Have a great weekend with your young Setter lass.  :)
