Lady slipper orchids

are orchids in the subfamily Cypripedioideae, which comprises the genera Cypripedium, Mexipedium, Paphiopedilum, Phragmipedium and Selenipedium

Its like going to the quack and getting them to explain all the freaking weird words they use.. flora is a bit like this, I am sure the names make sense to some.. but to me its gobbly-gok.. man I have wanted to use that phrase for yonks 🙂

So reading my ultrasound report on my busted ankle there is a line
there is subcutaneous oedema at the ankle
so I said to my doc, wtf man ?
to which he said swelling under the fat layer dude
and my response was why do they just not write swelling under the fat layer so your average pleb has half a chance of understanding it 🙂
he just smiled at me 🙂
…. just you wait until you come into my engineering world bro 🙂

anyways, here is a nice picture of a slipper orchid, focus stacked from a whole bunch of image on a pano rail thingy 🙂
