Day 4 - Pink Lady's Slipper

Day 4 brought 384 observations including my favorite NJ May woodland flower, the Pink Lady's slipper. Apolline Gaspars found this one blooming along the Patriot's Path in Chester. The Lady Slipper is a rare native orchid in our state, and its population is in decline. If you see one, enjoy its beauty but don't ever pick it or try to dig it up - they are very sensitive and will not survive.

Three more nice sightings from yesterday are shown below - Kendall Wood's Great Blue Heron and Garter Snakes from Owen Madsen and Phillip Inglis. Nice pictures!
