This pciture features several flowering Pink Lady Slipper Orchids, part of a much larger colony grwoing happily witht he Wharton State Forest in New Jersey. Located in the heart of the Pine Barrens, this colony lies a roughly a hundred yards from the banks of the Mullica River near the Lower Forge campsite. While foraging for firewood, stumbled across this group which contained over 60 flowering stems and approx 73 individuals. The pollination mechanism for this orchid is quite unique in that a slit int he pouch allows access to the insect but forces them to exit past the column and pollinia. Sometimes, bee's that become trapped will simply chew a hole intot he pouch and escape without doing the plant bidding!
