[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is Orchis italica, the "Italian Orchid", a rare orchid found in mountainous areas in central and northern Israel. The inflorescence is made of scores of flowers, each one resembles a little doll, complete with a hood, arms, legs, and... (the Italians call this orchid "Uomo Nudo", "naked man"). The morphology is similar to that of O. galilea and O. punctulata, to be posted later.

Bonjour Ishi,
C'est une splendide espèce d'Orchis, que nous n'avons pas en France. Merci de nous la faire découvrir avec cette belle photo aux couleurs naturelles.

Hello Ishi,

This is an amazing flower, which I have never seen before. You have also done a great job in recording it, with nice realistic colours, excellent light and a nice pov.

Kind regards,
