    Default Rattlesnake Plantain (Wild orchid) and wildflowers

    Hey guys,

    Took these pics on a hike back in September...this is rattlesnake plantain, it develops a spike in the center of the plant and has small white blooms on it. Love the foliage on this one! The third pic is possibly Joe Pye weed and the fourth pink turtlehead?
