[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Orchis galilaea is a species of orchid found from southern Turkey to Palestine.

This is quite different from other forms of this species which can have dense, pink flowers.

FYI, I have also posted a workshop capture of an earlier flowering stage(yellow form) of this Orchis galilaea specie.
