Wondering what orchid is featured in the background?
This is a Hammarbya paludosa, commonly known as a bog orchid. It can be found in boglands near slow running streams. A small, inconspicuous orchid which can reach 15 cm in height but usually grows to between 4 and 8 cm. The flowers have a sweet, cucumber-like scent.
