Hi Ori, this is a lovely shot. I feel like a bit too much has been cut off of the right but I like the colours and detail in the flower. You've brought out the remarkable structure of the flower very well. Was this taken out in the scrub? TFS :)

This is great shot. Colours are well balanced and contrasting. The details of the flower is shown very clearly.
Well Done...

Very nice bee orchid. Perfect sharp detail and colors. I like Ophrys species - very nice flowers with interesting ecology.

Belle présentation artistique.

Félicitations pour les belles couleurs.

Very good picture!
Perfect lighting,great colors.Nice work!

Nice shot! You've captured this one very nicely - I particularly like the isolation between the subject and the background. DOF is good, and I think the focus is good too - although it's very hard to say, there's way too much JPEG compression which has led to nasty pixellation of the speculum IMO. I'm also wondering about the colour balance slightly, the foliage seems a little more blue/cyan than I'd expect based on the UK Ophrys species - but that may just be a difference between them ;) Well captured :-)

Very nice shot, Ori.
I like the dark BG, it isolate the flower nicely.
Nice colours and good details.
Well done.

Hi Ori, very interesting plant.

Well done.

The texture and color of this orchid is lovely. I especially love the dark background that highlights the plants beauty well.
