[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
And today Ophrys holosericea, the Late Spider Orchid, which is quite similar to O. bornmuelleri I showed yesterday. They quite often hybridize. The flower is quite large for an Ophrys ("Bee Orchid"), with the lip about 12-14 mm in length. The pattern on the lip is quite diverse in the population.

Ciao Ishi, great macro of fantastic orchid, wonderful bright colors, splendid light and excellent clarity, very well done, my friend, have a good week end, ciao Silvio

Bonjour Ishi,
La saison des orchidées a bien débité, me semble-t-il en Israël ; en Bourgogne le froid est revenu et elles sont encore très rares au point d'en avoir photographié trois cet après midi mais que je ne peux pas publier !!!
Encore une très belle macro valorisant bien le sujet.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
