Shoe Fetish - or Ladyslipper Love
Some of my favorite orchids fall into the general descriptive category of 'ladyslipper' orchids. Here is a collection of some recent shots from the Matthaei Botanical Gardens orchid display. Local orchid growers keep the actual selection of orchids in the display in a constant state of flux, so I never know from week to week what I'll see there.

Sorry I don't have more information to provide on species specifics. These were not well labeled, or even labeled at all, or I would have photographed the labels and transferred the names to the respective photo files. The meta-data refer to just the top image in the set.
Title: Shoe Fetish - or Ladyslipper Love
The three shots were taken, moving clockwise from the top, on January 27, 2015; Jan. 27, 2015; and December 3, 2014.
