The Ojibwa Artist Naturalist Orchids

Northern Bog Orchid, Platanthera hyperborea Alger County
Copyright 1999 by

At first I thought this orchid was Platanthera dilatata or a hybrid. This plant was over two and a half feet high and growing in water from a slow moving spring. Other plants growing with it were giants also, such as Jack in the Pulpit and Mandarin. Pink Pyrola and One-sided Pryola were also found alongside this orchid.

I couldn't finish this picture because it started raining hard. Some of the smudges are caused from raindrops.
