[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Anacamptis pyramidalis is practically present on the whole French territory. At the beginning of summer, it often makes large colonies in meadows.

Its red-violet spike, conical at blooming, is quite distinctive. Flowers are numerous, close to each other showing a three-lobed lip and bearing some small blade-shaped excrescences at base.

Flowering season from May to July.

One of the "all time favorites". We have it, too, but it is not common.

Lovely capture with rain-drops. Very good light, color balance, and blurry background. It's nice to be able to clearly see the long spur of the lowest flowers.

Well done!
