[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is the endemic Galilee Lizard Orchid, shown from above with its many flowers. The labellum (lip) of the flower is narrow (~2 mm), somewhat twisted, long (about 50 mm), and is forked at its end, reminding some of a lizardís tongue. This is one of our rarest orchids, known from just a few locations in the Galilee and Golan.

nice angle, I think the correct name is galilaea. At any rate I do not think it is a good species, but rather a form under H. affine. dash Ori
