Photos of Mahone Bay - the bay, one of the world's great sailing grounds, Nova Scotia

Pink Lady's slipper, a wild orchid, requires a particular fungus to break open its seed and attach to it, passing on nutrients to the seed. Disturbing the soil affects the fungus. This endangered plant is now protected. Land development, rampant in some areas around Mahone Bay, destroys its habitat. (H. Holm photo)
