Fading Beauty

I visited a local pine forest area in Ottawa County, Michigan where in past years I've found large groups of Pink Lady Slipper orchids. Today I found just a few that were well past their prime. The one I chose to photograph still displayed its beauty which was quickly fading. I used my Canon Macro 50mm F-2.5 lens to get in close and capture more detail.
