[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Orchis fragrans is a rare orchid of wet habitats. It may reach 40 cm in height, carrying scores of small (about 15 mm in size) flowers that give a faint vanilla fragrance. The buds look in profile like little birds …

This one is similar to O. coriophora, but the latter has differntly colored flowers, and has an offensive crushed bed-bug odor.
