[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Orchis italica, “The Italian Orchid”, is commonly known (for obvious reasons seen in the picture) as “The Naked Man Orchid”, or if we adhere to Italian in this case, “Uomo Nudo”. This is the nicest of the Orchid genus we have in Israel. The particular specimen here, is not the biggest I found today, but it shows very well the structure of the individual flowers. The plant may reach 60 cm in height, bearing scores of tightly packed flowers. In Israel it is found at higher elevations, in this case at about 1000 m above sea level, on Mt. Meron, in the Upper Galilee.
