|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Species with restricted distribution to Rhodes and the opposite Turkish coasts of Aegean. One of the 2 representatives of blitopertha group with many similarities to the homonym Ophrys blitopertha. It differs from this latter species, as it prefers different biotopes (semi-shadowy and sparse coniferous forests), has more intense macula coloration, higher stem and more strong longitudinal bending of the lip. Also, it flowers slightly earlier, from mid-March - April.|

Hello, a very nice photo of the orchid. It seems to have an animated stance probably due to your POV. Nice composition that displays the flower well. Real beautiful macro shot. TFS,
