[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is the "Late Spider Orchid", one of of our last orchids to bloom in the spring. I stated the name still appearing in our Flora. However this is probably a variant of Ophrys episcopalis. known from the Greek Islands. The lip here is about 14 mm long. The plant (see WS) was about 40 cm tall and carried nine flowers (WS.)

Bonjour Ishi,
Je suis heureux de revenir découvrir tes images. Cette espèce est magnifique et tu l'as très bien captée, avec une utilisation bien dosée du flash. Effectivement, cet Ophrys paraît proche de O. episcopalis, que l'ai abondamment observé cette année en Crète.
