|A rare endangered orchid of the eastern Mediterranean. The lip is very long and non-spotted. The young flower has it lip rolled, before it unfold. It blooms after all other flowers dry, its own leaves are also dry already.|

A very interesting orchid. Nicely composed and sharp as usual. I particularly like the top one showing its wavy labellum.
'caprinum' as in goats?

What a strange orchid. Beautiful natural colours and excellent sharpness. Good choice of composition.
