I waited an entire year to photograph this VERY RARE Albino Showy Lady Slipper wild flower. Last year when I tried it was too late. The lady slipper was past it's peak in color and condition. The odds are only one in 70,000 plants or more for this variation. Not to be confused with the white lady slipper, the main sub leafs on this Showy are different in shape and color than the conventional White Lady Slipper. My window of opportunity for perfect light was less than 10 minutes. Perfect light, perfect exposure (very difficult), perfect flower. Limited Edition 928
