Sepp Hackhofer - Lady´s slipper


For me one of the most elegant creatures among flowers, the Lady´s slipper orchid. In this case, the blossom is just opening, still hiding it´s beauty. This rather rare orchid can appear in large numbers in some places, when conditions are good. It needs moist calcareous soil in semi-shaded woodland. Here in the Dolomites it is usually found in pine-forest along valleys.

Location: Dolomites, Al Plan de Mareo, South Tyrol, Südtirol, Italy
