[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Orchis caspia, related to O. papilionacea (the Butterfly Orchid) is one of our most common orchids. It has rather simple flowers about 2 cm in size, in light-to-dark shades of pink to fuchsia. This specimen had labellums with tinge of blue. The backlighting sunlight highlights the reddish-brown color of the sepals (the outer parts of the flower).

Hello Ishi,
wonderful macro of Orchis caspia with excellent details and beautiful colours
Best regards Siggi

Ciao Ishi, fantastic flower with wonderful colors, great details and splendid sharpness, very well done, ciao Silvio

Hello Ishi
Sorry to say, but this picture is to much fabricated (photoshopped!?!?)
I think you did a bad job here!.. Why ??
I'd like to see the original picture.. None of the pictures of this species I found on the Internet shows your -unnatural- colors!

A beautiful group of small orchids taken expertly from a good viewpoint Ishi, they look like shy concubines my friend!

amazing specimen, but I think you should reset your camera settings, all your recent pictures are dark and the colours are a bit strange, perhaps it is a white balance problem ? have a nice-rtainy weekend, Ori

A very beautiful species that I never seen before in TN or somewhere else.

Bonjour Ishi,
Splendide macro valorisant bien le sujet par la finesse des détails et la délicatesse des couleurs.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
