(Fairy Slipper)
Redwood Orchid
This beautiful orchid, also called Calypso Orchid or Fairy Slipper, grows wild in the solitude of deep forest, and blooms in early March. Choice of a small depth of field contrasts the strong color and detail of the orchid with the softer pastels of the background, drawing your eye back to the flower. Lack of breeze allowed the use of a slow shutter speed.

Kodachrome film, natural light, long exposure
