[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is one of the latest blooming of our orchids, found in israel only in the northern parts of the Galilee. The plant may reach 80 cm in height, and bear scores of flowers. Each flower is about 25 mm wide. Unlike many other orchids, the labellum contains nectar to attract pollinators.

This species prefers the shade, making taking its pix in natural light, like here, not easy.

Another specimen is shown in the WS.

Beautiful photo of the orchid, light well managed, they are difficult in forest lighting. regards yiannis

Bonjour Ishi,
La profondeur de champ ne me parait pas excellente mais le sujet est tout de même relativement bien valorisé sous une belle lumière qui fait ressortir les couleurs.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
