[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Limodorum abortivum is a saprophytic plant, it doesn't have any leaves and lives on rotting materials. In Israel it is a protected species that grows in the shade of typical oak scrub and pine forests. Prof. Amotz Dafni says that unlike other orchids its pollen is disintegrating and doesn't stay compact.

hello ori, fantastic shot of an fantastic orchid...
thank you....
kind regards

My dear friend, Ori

aaah what a beauty! Before reading your notes, I wondered how this beauty survived in that area!?!

Amazing story - what does the pollen disintegrating mean in practicality - is the plant endangered?

I find on some blooms of my orchids this odd texture (nearly like foam)reflecting the flash like tiny drops of water...

Great work, thank you

Lovely! The details of the loose pollen, in contrast to the usual orchid pollinia, are especially interesting.



Hola Ori

Vaya una Orquidea diferente a otras que he visto, muy original y tambien el texto excrito que es interesante. Buena toma.

Un saludo de Antonio
