Summer colors

Here is an almost totally made up picture… These are ladies slippers from the Canadian Rockies, known as cypripedium acaule.  This is a team picture that Jose (my spouse) and I realized to try to win a photo contest in the plant category. We had installed a large focalisation lens to be able to work further from the plant, at about 4 yards.  We would spray the plant with a garden hose to simulate a rainfall and finally, we used two lighting flashes setup at different angles so that there wasn’t any possible shade.  Our goal was almost reached, as we won the second prize.  Have a good day and enjoy the sun for those who may.
