Back to Clark Lake

Have been trying to get back to Clark Lake to check out the Arethusa Orchid not going to happen this year.  I have decided and looked into many field guides that I have not got the right flower.  My pictures were taken leaning over the canoe, with the wind blowing me away from the side of the floating bog.  Sorry to say I should have taken more than the two I have.  Have cleaned up the best one with Photoshop to try and sharpen it a bit.  This is what came out of that editing.  From what I see now I believe it's a Rose Pogonia (Pogonia ophioglossoides).  I'm going to go to the expert on this ML who watches when I make mistakes.  I am glad to have her help me in cases like this.

Thank you for the compliment.
I am interested in plants and I try to learn much of nature. It ist very interesting for me to learn something about the american flora.

Yes, I think the flower on your picture is a Rose Pogonia. Looks nice.

Thanks ML I researched it quite well myself after I rethought my first id. I will go out next year and get some better pictures of it and will know more about it too.
