[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Another late blooming orchid, named after the Holy Land. Here it is seen with a possible pollinator, an insect I have not ID-ed it yet. The WS shows the entire plant with the same insect in one of the lower flowers. I recorded it on three of the flowers.

The lip is about 15 mm long.
