Artist's Description

This beauty was growing in a low wet area at Hunter’s Point Park in Copper Harbor, Michigan USA.
A member of the Orchid Family, it is also known as Fairy Slipper and Venus’s Slipper.
A single pink to purple flower nods at the tip of its stem. The plant is 3 to 8 inches high and blooms in late spring to early summer in swamps and wet woods. It is considered a “threatened species”
It is classified in the genus Calypso, which takes its name from the Greek signifying concealment, as they tend to favor sheltered areas on conifer forest floors. This also makes them very easy to overlook, I almost stepped on the ones in this shot!
