Yellow Lady's-slipper

For some (frustrating) reason, I never seem to be able to get decent photos of these rare wildflowers when I take a more distant shot of the whole flower. The deep yellow tends to come out as almost white-yellow. However, this macro shot does do the colour justice. Seen a couple of days ago - we were all covered in mud, our shoes and boots weighing a ton with all the heavy mud that clung to them, but well worth it.

 

I don't know if anyone else is having a "slow" problem on Flickr. Each time I click on something, it takes forever to open, save, etc.. Later: ah, Flickr has Hiccups - about time such a message appeared on my screen, ha.
