Subhash Sharma  There are approximately 165 species in the subfamily Cypripedioideae which comprises this beautiful looking Lady's slipper orchids, Unlike most other orchids, slipper orchids have two fertile anthers — they are "diandrous". For that reason, experts have debated whether this clade should be classified within the orchid family (Orchidaceae), or whether they should compose a separate family altogether called Cypripediaceae. Cypripedium are found across much of North America, as well as in parts of Europe (one species) and Asia. The state flower of Minnesota is the showy lady's slipper (Cypripedium reginae); the pink lady's slipper (Cypripedium acaule) is the official flower of the Canadian province of Prince Edward Island.

Mr. Sharma is a Facebook friend who lives in Dublin, Ireland. He frequently comments on my photographs when I post them on Facebook.

I think it is so interesting that orchids have their very own little water cup.  Such a unique design.
