Artist's Description

A close-up image of a group of Pink Lady’s Slipper (Cypripedium acaule) orchids in a brightly sunlit forest.

Captured in Neys Provincial Park in on the shores of Lake Superior in northern Ontario.

Taken with a Canon Rebel XSi using an 18-55mm lens.

Cypripedium acaule is a member of the orchid genus Cypripedium. Members of this genus are commonly referred to as lady’s slipper orchids.
In Canada and other regions of North America, the Pink Lady’s Slipper is also known as the Mocassin Flower due to the resemblance of it’s blossom to native american footwear.
First described in 1700, Cypripedium acaule is commonly referred to as the Pink Lady’s Slipper. The Pink Lady’s Slipper is the provincial flower of Prince Edward Island, Canada. In Nova Scotia, Canada it is considered endangered and is protected by law.

If the plant’s blossom does not cycle through, it will not regenerate; for this reason, it is recommended that the flower not be picked.
