[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
More orchids from that outing of March 29. This is the Bee Bee-Orchid. This one is from the border between the Lower and Upper Galilee. In Israel this species a rather rare. It has very deep colored sepals, compared to the specimens I've seen in Europe. The lip, shaped like a bee's abdomen, is about 10 mm long.

The WS shows an entire plant and also a closer look at the flower shown here.

Hello Ishi,
Very beautiful macro of this orchid in good sharpness and splendid colours. Fine DOF and composition.
Have a nice weekend,

Hi Ishi,
Really interesting orchid, and your composition is very pleasant, such like colors and DoF. Beside the diagonal compo I especially like the contrast between the deep purple flowers and the blurred, pale green background. Nice job, congratulations!
Best regards, László
