I was able to head out to G. Richard Thompson Wildlife Management Area one last time during the past week. A few of the trillium were still in good shape, but the real wildflower show was all about the orchids. The yellow lady's slipper (Cypripedium parviflorum) and showy orchis (Galearis spectabilis) were at their absolute peak (some were even starting to go past). I've compiled all my best images (including these newest ones) into a slide show of the 2011 season at Thompson. I'll surely be back next spring! I recommend clicking on the fullscreen button for the best viewing experience. If you are viewing on an iPhone or iPad, just click on the static image to go to the image gallery and then click "Slideshow" for an Apple-friendly version of the slide show.
