Western Heart-leaved Twayblade

Western Heart-leaved Twayblade
This is the fourth native orchid we've photographed this season. We had a horrible time photographing them, though. It was breezy and they were tucked in between two fallen logs.Usually we find them higher in the mountains, but there is one location we know where it grows at a very low elevation and always flowers there early in the season, but only a few plants (six this season). This is the reddish form of the species. There is also a plain green form. The species is tiny, the whole plant with its flower spike six to eight inches or less (15 cm) and the flowers less than half an inch (1 cm). Its current botanical name is Neottia cordata var. nephrophylla.

Sweet photo. You've given me a hint as to why I haven't found the twayblade listed for my part of the California mountains...perhaps I have not looked close and small enough...
