    Default Pogonia ophioglossoides; Calopogon pulchellus; Arethusa bulbosa

    Nerd that I am, I love to tromp around in bogs looking for wild orchids. This day was breezy, so it was hard to get the photos in focus, but these are a few of the best. At one point, I was so focused on focusing that I actually fell through the bog mat... squish! Saved the camera, though. Photos taken in Maine, USA, in July 2009.
    1. Arethusa bulbosa, "Swamp Pink"
    2. Calopogon pulchellus, "Grass Pink"

    4. Calopogons happily growing in their preferred bog habitat!

    Yep, I fell through... up to my hips. Luckily, I was able to save myself... but boy, did I smell bad... very funny.
