What flower is this?

I took a long walk (about 5 miles) through the woods and near the water.  It was absolutely stunning the way all the colors sparkled and the sky was so blue.  I was so mesmerized with looking up at the bright green leaves and the blue of the sky and then the sparkles dancing off the water that I nearly missed the beauty of this little flower.  They covered the floor of the woods.  The pink is so soft.  I thought it was a form of Ladies Slipper but I am not sure.  If you know please tell me and thanks!  Forgive the photo - I took it with the camera on my phone.

It looks like a little orchid to me but I'm in Australia and we wouldn't see these here. Very pretty!!

I have no idea. But it's very pretty.
Hey, I was waiting to see your "bird" doll! Did time get away from you like it did me? I just got mine in under the wire and I totally had different plans in my head than what I ended up doing...oh well.
Hope all is good with you!

I never thought about an orchid. This flower looks like it had been blown up like a little balloon.

You know Cindi - my bird doll never took flight. Something about that chubby doll body kept holding me back. I should have just done a full sculpt. ;o)

That's a pink lady slipper. I just saw one in the woods a few days ago near Goshen Pass in Virginia.
