There are some things I just have to see when they come in season. One of the things I must see and take photos of is the yellow lady slippers.  They are an attractive  flower. 

     At one time I had the mistaken idea that yellow lady slippers were rare ,but not so. Yellow lady slippers will grow under many conditions. They will grow in disturbed soils. You can find them growing in a ditch be side the road. 

     Last Sunday I went out to my favorite patch of Yellow Lady slippers. There were more flowers blooming than last year. 

     So along with the lady slippers I caught a few other blooms. This site is about 2 acres. In the last photo I tried to show the number of lady slippers in a patch but it doesn't show what I saw. 


I've never seen a butterfly like this.
