Purdon Conservation Area in Lanark, Ontario, is a wetland known for its exceptionally large colony of showy lady's slipper orchids (Cypripedium). Our web photographer Elena Bowell took these photos last summer.

Editor's Note: Showy lady's slipper orchids are an endangered or threatened species in many areas. They should not be disturbed in their natural habitat.
