[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I think one of the most beautiful Ophryses I've ever seen . . . . Till now
I found it on the peninsula Gargano. A very orchid-rich part of Italy.

A very nice site for information about the Ophrys genus is:

Thank you for looking

nice bee orchid, TFS Ori

Bonjour Roël,
Très belle macro finement détaillée et délicatement coloré de cet Ophrys tenthredinifera également connu sous les noms d'Ophrys tenthredinifera Willd, Ophrys à grandes fleurs, Ophrys Guêpe, Ophrys Tenthrède.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

phantastic image, so very powerfully approached - with wealthy details and delightfully deep colours! My congratulations! A most beautiful Ophrys that I have not seen yet. Love to see those well hidden and rare orchids, we do have some similar ones (O. holoserica, O. apiformis) near Vienna in May - but only in a few - and rather secret - places.
With thanks, and best regards,

P.S.: Thank you for your kind words to Nigritella.
I totally agree with your suggestions of improval. The image was not intending to portray that flower in detail but just a quick snapshot while going up the mountains in order to catch "the feeling" up there.
