My friend Kayla and I decided to go up to Tobermory during their Orchid festival this weekend but decided to hike to the locations on our own schedule. Having been to the festival last year I knew some of the places to find the orchids.

My goal this year was to get a good photo of a Ram Head Lady’s Slipper orchid so we went for a hike at Singing Sands. These flowers are very small and easy to walk past if you’re not looking hard enough. There is an area on the trail where a very good grouping of them grow.

The above shot was taken at that grove. I’d say I can check this flower off my list. At least until next year.
