[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This D. Sambucina I found on Gotland as well. The adam and eve orchid is quite common there on gotland and oland. IT is equally spread between a yellow and red variety, hence the swedish name adam and eve, one color adam, the other eve

Hi J,

what should I say as every picture which you placed here is a picture which shows a rare plant with excellent condition!

Hello Jeroen,
Nice portait of what we call the Adam form of O. sambucina. The details of the flowers are well seen against a nice clean BG.
Thanks and best regards,

Please excuse my asking: as many of your pix have this nice green background, I wonder whether it Is natural. Some botanists use different cloth backgrounds to show better the details of the flowers.

BTW why do post such a small-size file?



Hi Jeroen,
A wonderful pure white species,
a clear picture.
