Lady's slipper (wild species outside the common shoe store)

Cypripedium calceolus - - - Gelber Frauenschuh

Last Sunday, in the same nature reserve where we found the fly & spider orchids as well as the military orchids, we detected five flourished blossoms of the very rare and endangered Lady's slipper orchid.

By the way: The Lady's slipper is orchid of the year 2010

Orchidee des Jahres 2010

That doesn't interest the snail in the orchid's neighborhood in the slightest.


  1. I have never seen that flower.
    Very lovely!

  2. Awesome Schnecke shot! :)

  3. These orchids are lovely and so much the better for being an a natural environment.
