Another lovely specimen of this Late Spider Orchid. Compare to yesterday's post, and note the diversity of the species.

More of the same plant is given in the WS.

Hello Ishi,
What an impressive and beautiful species of Ophrys!
Your capture both of the main and Ws images show the features with fine clarity and saturated colours against a fine OOF natural BG that shows the flowers at their best.
Great to view and thanks for sharing this,
Best regards,

Fabulous portrait of these lovely Orchids, I have to agree with Peter Z that the noise is a little much, but nevertheless a very strong image,
Congratulations and have a nice evening,
Best Regards,

Hello Ishi
Another impressive Orphys photo with very good composition, wonderful colours and very good sharpness.

Hallo Ishi
The rich and warm colours of this orchid is so beautifully captured and is indeed catching to the eye. I just fancy the vertical, centralized composition, the water droplets on the petals and the markings on the rest of the flower. An excellent portrayel of beauty!. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Bonjour Ishi,
Très belle macro valorisant bien le sujet sous une bonne lumière faisant resplendir les couleurs.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Hello Ishi,
THis is a wonderful capture of this fine Ophrys. Excellent sharpness and lovely bright colours. They certainly seem to vary a lot. We spent a morning enjoying orchids here, among others the pretty little Fly Orchid.
TFS and best regards, Ulla
