Calypso Fairy Orchid

Early Season Wildflowers

On a tip from Andrea Sedlmayr at RE/MAX of Boulder, I ventured up to the top of Sugerloaf Road in Boulder Canyon on Saturday to shoot the endangered Calypso Fairy Orchid that is out in full bloom right now. What a beautiful little flower and a great opportunity! Here I used my 80-200mm lens with 12mm-, 24mm- and 36mm-extension tubes, sometimes stacked together, and a reflector to capture these gorgeous tiny flowers.

What do you think about these images?
