Summer orchid memories

Here's a shot of an atlas moth visiting a helleborine. This picture was taken at the Pinery Provincial Park, Ontario, July 2009.

So nice to see orchids in Canada. I don't think as the great white north as orchid country but what a beauty.How long can bloom time last in Ontario?

In one part of southern Ontario, on the Bruce Peninsula, there are 44 different species of orchids that can be found!

Bloom time definitely varies species by species and depending on the environmental conditions. Bloom time goes from May to September.
