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! http://www.orchidfest.ca/

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