Pink Lady's Slipper aka Moccasin flower

Cypripedium acaule (Orchidaceae) - Also known as "Pink Lady's-Slipper", this native orchid prefers acid soil such as is found in pine woods. They bloom in late spring.

I have lots of them in my backyard woods under some giant pine trees and hiding amind the ferns and baby maple trees...
