In the Land of Fairies
This morning Jay and I went for a hike on one of the local trails. It was actually more like he hiked and I kept stopping to photograph. The best thing about the hike was that the Fairy Slippers were blooming in abundance. They are known by a few other names as well, Calypso Orchid and Venus's Slipper.They aren't very big which is probably why they are often called Fairy slippers.They are so delicate and incredibly beautiful when viewed close up. I also photographed some fungi and some other early blooming wilfdlowers. May your day be blessed, chris Camera Equipment Used- Canon 7D, 100 mm Macro Lens,Ground pod with a Manfrotto/Bogen 3055 ballhead. Camera Settings- AV Mode,ISO 400,Exposure varied.
