Wild Orchids in France: Ophrys lutea
Ophrys lutea, one of the yellow Ophrys, blooming at the edge of a field in Vernegues, France. These orchids are insect mimics, most being pollinated by male bees or flies, attracted by female pheromones exuded by the flowers. Sadly, the area where these are from is slowly being subdivided for houses.
