Bee - Orchid

Ah! I guess you thought you were going to see images of a Bee Orchid (Ophrys apifera), but I had forgotten to post the Orchid images so I thought this was a good way to do it. Sorry.{:))

This is a B. Rupestris I think.


Early Purple Orchid (Orchis mascula)

Maybe a B.Vestalis, who knows from this angle.{:))



B. Rupestris



Maybe a B. Muscorum

  6. I'd love to see more orchids this year - it's one of my aims of this summer. I haven't seen any yet - so I'll enjoy your lovely photos of them.

  7. You certainly fooled me with the title Roy but I loved this post nevertheless, especially as I haven't seen any Orchids so far this year.
