[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Here is our first orchid of the season, showing clearly the characteristics of the species: the omega form on the labellum (lip) and the lack of cavity in the base of it. Many specimens have also a tuft of hair their, on the stigma region. The labellum is about 10 mm long.

Hallo Ishi
This is truly stunning. A floral macro at its best. The colours and delicate features of this Ophrys israelitica beautifully captured. I like dark background, the composition and the close point of view. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.
