Orchids of Ontario

This is a photographic album of the wild orchids of Ontario, Canada, that we have photographed between 2006 and 2015. Wild orchids belonging to 8 families have been found to date: calopogon (Grass Pink) , calypso (Calypso), corallorhyza (Coral Roots), cypripedium (Lady's Slippers), epipactis (Helleborines), goodyera (Rattlesnake Plantains), spiranthes (Ladies' Tresses) and platanthera (Bog/Fringed Orchids). All pictures were taken in Southern Ontario, mainly the Bruce Peninsula, near Orillia, Torrence Barrens and around Killarney.

I will be out again next year looking for new orchids to add to the list. The Bruce alone has 44 different orchids, so there are still lots out there to find.
