Kalimera Yiannis,
Beautiful shot, vivid colors and great symmetry. This species is living in my home country, Hungary also, but is very rare and I've never seen it myself so far. You're lucky. :-) Fine image, congrats and tfs.

Hallo Yiannis
The delicate and fine detail of this Lady's Slipper Orchid
is really very pleasant to look at. It surely reminds me of Spring and sunshine and also of Cinderella's shoe. Not only is it a beautiful flower, but the presentation is great too. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Yiannis : you're lucky to have seen it, because I do not see this year.
She is so special and so elegant.
Thank you for this publication
Best Regards

Hello Yiannis
such a lovely pair that stood beautifully on the lovely green background. Excellent work and pretty species.


Yiannis, I am jealous! This is a "must see" in the wild species. I did not have the chance until now, but hope still persist.

great picture for this beautiful orchid, congrats Yiannis !
