An Egg for Breakfast? (Cypripedium montanum)

Everyone who sees this picture tells me it reminds them of an egg. It has now become the picture of the "egg flower". Since I do most of my photography in the early morning hours, I would not mind if some plants were to turn into eggs for me to eat. Afterall, I get quite hungry at times during my photography expeditions.

This is a native lady slipper orchid (Cypripedium montanum) that is somewhat rare.
