This Ophrys aymoninii or Yellow fly ophrys was one of the specials I went to France for to see. Endemic to the Causses, I couldn't find it at first, untill I finally found this wonderful specimen. After which of course I found many more, but all just opening up,

Hello Jeroen,
This is really a beautiful flower, I can see why you wanted to view it in person so badly. The tiny blooms almost remind me of a person, with two arms and two legs. The vertical presentation is definitely the way to go when showing off this particular plant. Excellent detail and just the right exposure. Well done!!
