Soft Woods

I showed a composite of ladies slippers during their June season last year. The background right behind the main flower is a border collie, our guide.

Really like this scene, Mary...forest undergrowth is complex and wonderful.
Mary MacADNski: Yes. In the foreground, moss and tender shoots. The smell is one of my favorite.
Very pretty Mary

a magic, enchanted, verwunschener forest, a fairy-tale forest ! I love the photo and the flowing stream I can hear rushing!
Mary MacADNski: I love the stream and jumping frog. It is so real.
This is a lovely picture Mary
Mary MacADNski: You didn't find a frog in your mug did you?

Hop to it! ;o)

Super photograph Mary - the subtle colour and use of shallow depth make a delightful composition.
Mary MacADNski: I have files full of the forest floor.
I love the DOF in this one a lot
Mary MacADNski: Thanks, Chantal.
That's a lovely scene, Mary.

Cracking photo.....did,nt even see the dog at first
Mary MacADNski: I had two to choose from and the other showed the dog quite well.
So pretty Mary! I can see the collie.
Mary MacADNski: She was a lovely guide. I was taking my Aussie friend to see ladies slippers.
To find these in the wild, perhaps commonplace with you, but over here a different story.
Mary MacADNski: They are PEI's provincial flower. They are rare to a certain degree but plentiful where they are found. It is illegal to pick them. They do not transplant well as they are next to impossible to dig up. They have a very, very long taproot.

Mary MacADNski: They are PEI's provincial flower, illegal to pick and wonderful to find.
