Habenaria quinqueseta (v. macroceratitis) done for FLOR500 project.

Awhile ago, I was made aware of a project called FLOR500, which invited 500 local Florida artists to participate in creating artwork representing 500 species of wildflowers native to Florida.  This is to commemorate the 500th anniversary of Ponce de Leon's landing on the Florida coast and giving the state its name.

I chose Habenaria quinqueseta (v. macroceratitis), known from the Central Florida region, for my art piece, done in chalk pastel on black recycled art paper.  Click the image to see a larger version.
