In the cool dark cedar and spruce swamp grows one of the most beautiful ladyslippers in all of Michigan. 
The Showy Lady's Slipper.
When I am sitting inches away from them I find myself not wanting to leave. The wet moist ground and the coolness of the swamp is so inviting. Warblers sing in the trees overhead and the breeze whispers in the cedar trees. From early morning till late evening the slippers put on a show.
When ever the light changes they seem to change.
The image you see here was taken late in the evening and the dark of the swamp created a pleasing and magical mood. With the company of yellow lady's slippers growing right next to them it makes for one beautiful sight.
