A fine little Orchis specimen amaong macchie litter, captured perfectly, as usual, from a plesant viewpoint Ori, TFS my friend.

Hi Ori

What a lovely little dainty orchid you have shown me today!
It is nice to see its habitat as well as the whole orchid. I think I shall be visiting my Orchids this weekend, to see how they are coming along.

They should be in full flower now if the deer/rabbits and pheasants have not gotten to them first! If they have then I will have a window sill of orchid flowers in water (they grow on private land, so this is legal)...

Take care and TFS

Hi Ori, lovely shapes and a fine specimen. I like the way you have the full plant in the frame, the leaf litter is also very nicely done. TFS regards h

Hola Ori,
Preciosa florecilla, que tú sabes sacarle toda su belleza en su ambiente natural, cosa que es de agradecer, dado que algunos fotógrafos suelen arrancarlas para hacer una composición mas bonita. Gracias por compartirla. Saludos
José Ramón

Lovely specimen with rather unusual labellum marking. Very good shot!


Vaya, y con el apellido del País.
Encantado de conocerla. :-)

Bonjour Ori,
Très joli espèce de chênaie verte, aux ornementations originales, qui ne ressemble à aucune provençale.
