The Ojibwa Artist Naturalist Orchids

    Dragon's Mouth, Arethusa Bulbosa

Copyright 1999 by Michael Sherman

I drew this orchid while kneeling in a peat bog. I slowly sunk until the stained water was up to my chest. Despite my best efforts, my presence left a slight depression and crushed plants where I was drawing. Please be aware that walking on these bog matts can have a negative impact. I now do it as little as possible.
