Individual plants often host interesting little critters. This little spider refused to come around to the shady side of the leaf; likely the dew had evaporated from his sunny side.
When I look closely at the blooms, I discover even more of interest. Flying insects best be wary when they enter the flower.
Cypripedium reginae doesn't live in a mono-culture, so there are interesting complementary plants like this Water Avens, Geum rivale, whose flower is now growing into a spiky seed head.
It just seems to me that when I am photographing these orchids, I see faces such as in this portrait of two ladies with friends beyond.
I see the resemblance to slippers, but I still see faces first. It affects how I approach the composition.
