Yeah, sure.

I was alone and tired in VoF when I saw this plant and got back my
energy. No one was there to take a pic of me with this plant. I took a
nap next to this beauty at 3600m asl in open.
Finding these Cypripediums was a divine experience for me. Three
different species in one day was really a big deal which is
explainable in words!!
