[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
One of the specials from Gotland, Orchis spitzelli. Very hard to find. Not because it is so rare, but because it looks so much like a small Orchis mascula (St Peter's key!) which is like a weed on Gotland. (A very pretty weed). The funny thing about the spitzelli, is that the closest place from Gotland it grows is more then 1500 Km to the south.

Hi Jeroen,
Nice to meet this very pretty orchid, with fine details and nice green backgound. Very strange species which grows on Sweden... but also on the Alps and Balkans until Lebanon (according Delforge)! A rare one. TFS! Cheers,

Hi Jeroen
Wonderful this wild orchid with great colors and wonderful details. Perfect POV and BG.

Congatulations Jeroen!
You found what we in Swedish call Alpnycklar and took a great shot of it in flower. Excellent sharpness, colours and clean BG. Well done and thanks!
