Another ophrys from france. With this picture I finished my collection of all Ophrys that flowers or flowered in the netherlands. Befor last weekend there were three more species I had never seen, and I found them all, so needless to say: Viva la France!!

Hello Jeroen

Excellent capture of the fuciflora.
Lovely colours against the soft green BG
Here in the UK it only grows in Kent and judging by the flowering season will be a few weeks off.

Ji Jeroen. It sounds like you had a good time. This Ophrys fuciflora has been taken with fine detail and natural colours. I like the DOF it helps to set the picture of to its best. TFS.

Preciosa captura Jeroen !
Naturalidad en la luz y los colores.
Saludos: J. Ignasi.

Hi Jeroen,

A very restful, pleasant shot! I like how the flower stalk is so distinct from, and yet almost part of, the BG at the same time. Very good colours. Very attractive composition. TFS.

Hi Jeroen,
beautiful wild flower captured in smoothness of the neat green background .i like its contrast of the petals to the soft bg.
Well composed and the beauty is well seen in exciting details and sharpness.
