Grass-Pink Orchids

I had been planning to go back to Ponemah Bog to try to get a look at the following:
  1. Grass-Pink Orchids
  2. Bog Copper butterflies
  3. Sundew with insects caught on them

George was up for a ride, so we both enjoyed the bog.  I think I saw two fly-by Bog Coppers, but neither one was near enough to the boardwalk for a positive ID.  The grass-pink orchids were beautiful ~~ my first time seeing them!  No luck with insects on the sundew.  You know what the means....I'll just have to go back again!

 Sundew, Pitcher Plants and Grass-Pinks all in one view!

Back at home, I saw a flash of orange flying in the back yard and found a nice Eastern Comma.
