A Rare Orchid Oddity

Just one picture here, but it's very special! This is a pink Lady's Slipper. Yes, it is! But it's albino. How cool is that? First one I've ever seen, although I've found pictures of a few on line.

What a fantastic capture, Shark. I've not seen one either so this is very special.

What an awesome find. I had no idea that there were albino plants.

That's so cool. I wouldn't have recognized it as a lady's slipper (not that I know my flowers anyway, lol)

Lin said...

Oh, cool! I think that is a lucky sign, isn't it?? :)

Lovely orchid - I bet you came across it looking for something else, that's how I usually find my rare ones :)
