These pictures are from the Wharton State Forest in the Martha Furnace and Batsto areas.  It was a good day for orchids; we found one colony of Liparis loeselii in a small seep, and dozens of flowering Calopogon tuberosus in a savannah along the Oswego river.  We also saw plenty of Pogonia ophioglossoides there, but they were mostly buds with just a few flowers starting to open.
