Two members of the Orchid family.

Amy Ruegg photographed two members of the Orchid family, Merten's Coralroot and Spotted Coralroot. They depend on fungi for the nutrients they need. First is the Merten's.

And here is the Spotted.

Because they need fungi in the soil to thrive, they cannot be transplanted. If you find one, just admire it and feel fortunate that you got to see one!

Thanks to Amy for allowing me to share her photos with you here.
