[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is so-called Late Spider orchid, one of our showiest Ophrys (Bee Orchid) species. It comes in a range of forms, and possible hybrids with Ophrys bornmuelleri, the Early Spider Orchid. The lip is about 20 mm long.

The WS shows the upper part of the plant with two flowers and buds.

Ciao Ishi, wonderful orchid with fantastic colors, splendid sharpness and fine details, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Great shot there ishi.

This must be the ophrys with almost the largest range, since it also grows around belgium and the eifel near the netherlands.

Beautiful flower


nice, though too contrasty close up, dash Ori
