Ophrys pseudoscolopax

Ophrys pseudoscolopax, a rare terrestrial orchid found growing on an isolated hill/ridge near Cabrieres D'Aigues.  These are both rare and hard to spot so it was very good luck to get a photo of one.

Wow! That one is pretty, but then you know I like orchids, the more unusual the better.

These are tiny little terrestrials just come up for Spring. They have their big moment over perhaps two weeks of blooming and then disappear for another year!
