Calypso Orchids

Calypso Orchids

One of my favorite springtime wildflowers is the calypso orchid. It is fairly common in the woods in Washington State. The group below, mixed in with yellow stream violets, is at the Bloedel Nature Reserve on Bainbridge Island … I have never seen such a large grouping in the wild.

Bridges are symbols of important events in life. It’s nice when they are able to be done in the midst of flowers and natural beauty.

There is a foot bridge over a small gully in the Bloedel Reserve that provides a wonderful opportunity for shooting directly down on plants such as these ferns. It provides just a slightly different perspective than the usual.
