Calypso bulbosa - Calypso Orchid from the Talkeetna Mtns.
1992

In 1992 I saw an announcement that the AkOS (Alaska Orchid Society) was having a Contest for photos of Orchids.
I had been doing a lot of AK wild flowers and had several native orchids in my collection of wildflower photos.

I really liked the series this came from.
So, I entered it.
It was their first attempt at anything like a photo contest as well as mine.
It was not well managed.
It did receive an award, but nothing other than a written notification was given.
I do not remember what the award was.
Several years later, I began growing orchids and joined the AkOS as an enthusiast.

This will probably show again when I finish my AK Wildflower album here.
