[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This, the Broad-Leaved Helleborine, is one of the last orchids to bloom in late spring in Israel. Found in many locations in Europe and in the Middle East, in Israel it typically grows in oak or mixed forests or maquis. The flower is about 25 to 30 mm wide.

The picture was taken in natural, rather poor, lighting, with a hand-held camera.

Hi Ishi
I really liked the light of the image, altought you caught it in a natural and "poor" lightning, I really think this is the best light to capture these beautiful "laelias" yet with a good sharpness, DOF and POV..
well done.

Hello Ishi,
Excellent close-up of the Broad-leaved Helleborine, an orchid that we have here in Ahus on the sand dunes in the pine forest! Here it doesn't come into flower until late July. I like your composition very much and details are very sharp showing the beautiful flowers. A fine soft background too.
Many thanks and best wishes, Ulla
