[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Many orchids from temperate to tropical regions are called butterfly orchids because of a resemblance, fanciful or otherwise, to butterflies. Anacamptis papilionacea (formerly Orchis) flowers in vast numbers in Gargano and dense populations can give a reddish-brown tint to the landscape

Throughout the Mediterranean region.

Frequent in garigue, scrub, olive groves etc.

Hello ANita and Mike,
Wow, I've never seen this wonderful Orchid but it's really good to see it here on your brilliant capture! It is really striking in its lovely combination of wine colour and pink and details are very sharp. A lovely bunch together too and well composed.
Many thanks and best wishes, Ulla

Bonjour Anita et Mike,
C'est une belle présentation sur laquelle ces orchidées, bien mises en valeur, y apparaissent avec suffisament de détails et naturellement colorées dans une agréable lumière.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
