Dragon's mouth, Arethusa bulbosa

Dragon's mouth, snake mouth or arethusa, you can pick among common names. I've always preferred arethusa. It seems a little more exotic for this little orchid. The first thing for wildflower photography is to find them. Then you have to join them. All my arethusa pictures have been taken with me belly down in a bog. Strangely, that makes me even more fond of those images. Arethusa grows in bogs in CT(E), DE, IL, IN(X), MA(T), MD(X), MI, MN, NC(E), NH(E), NJ, NY(T), OH(E), PA(E), RI(E), SC, VA, VT(T), WI, LB, MB, NB, NF, NS, ON, PE, QC, SK, and SPM.
