[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Shown here are two flowers on the same plant of this small bee orchid. The one on the right has its lateral sepals closed over the stigma, indicating the plan has already been pollinated. Thus potential pollinators are directed to those flowers that have not been pollinated yet.

Another plant is shown in the WS.

Hello Ishi,

an beautiful orchid presented by you this day.
The sharpness are good but i think on the wrong place.
Fine saturated colors.


Hello Ishi,
lovely capture of this beautiful bee orchid with great sharpness and many details. I especially like the vivid colours and the nicely blurred background.
Best wishes,

Bonjour Ishi,
Très belle publication, dotée d'un très intéressant commentaire, avec cette bonne macro valorisant bien deux aspects gégétatifs du sujet.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Hello Ishi,
Both the main and the WS images are fine portrayals of this little orchid, a species I found hard to capture well with my equipment when we were in Mallorca.
These close shots of the flowers are taken with excellent sharpness, DOF and natural colours.
Thanks and best regards,

Hello Ishi,
Very nice photo of this bee orchid in beautiful light and colours. Good focus on the left part of the plant. A pity that the BG is a bit noisy. Good DOF.

Good to see this nice orchid. Nice colours and lighting. regards yiannis

Hi Ishi,
Beautiful mediterranean species of bombi, rare in my country

Ciao Ishi, interessante immagine di questa strana orchidea. Ottimo l'algolo di ripresa anche se l'immagine presenta parecchio rumore e forse un po' di micromosso causato dal non uso del treppiede. Mi sono permesso un workshop per cercare di migliorare un poco lo scatto. Un saluto, Paolo
