[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Last Friday was a perfect day for flower photography: bright sunshine, and hardly any wind, at least in the early hours, a great opportunity to photograph orchids under natural light, with possble flash fiil.

Our first stop was near the town of Carmi'el in the Lower Galilee, on a calcareous hill that produces many orchid species. Here is Ophrys transhyrcana. Another, quite different specimen is given in the WS. It is possible that this species needs re-evaluation.

Note the little red mite (?) at the upper left corner.

This is great Ishi!
With just the right use of flash and natural lighting you have achieved a top quality capture of this Ophrys flower, a species I have never seen.
Beautiful natural colours, top sharpness and a dine DOF that give a pleasing bokeh BG.
This mite is a little bonus!
