Frog Orchid (Coeloglossum viride)
This was a new species to me.
I was walking around a local nature reserve and noticed a Chap photographing something on the ground. It looked from a distance very small and very indistinct. When I inquired, I was informed that it was a Frog Orchid. It was so small and on closer inspection of the plant I realised that there was more to it than meets the eye.
I would have walked by and not given it a second look probably.

I have found more of the Bee Orchid (Below) now and they appear to be having a really good year.
A poor image, but can you spot the Orchid.
