Purple Fringed Orchid on Mt. Greylock

The very delicate flowers of the Purple Fringed Orchid.
I saw 5 or 6 of these beautiful orchids on Mt. Greylock yesterday on the Stage Trail and the Woodason Spring Trail. I had never seen them before so I asked the rangers at the Visitors Center who identified the flower and knew where I had found it.

Of course, I didn't pick it. The rangers identified it from the photo on my camera. I never pick any wildflowers. I enjoy them where they are and leave them in peace to live out their natural life!
