Daily Images – the Calypso orchid is also known as the fairy slipper or Venus’s slipper and has a small pink, purple, pinkish-purple, or red flower accented with a white lip, darker purple spottings, and yellow beard. It is the only species currently classified in the genus Calypso, which takes its name from the Greek signifying concealment, as they tend to favour sheltered areas on conifer forest floors.
