Just like one of the ones we saw in the National park here.
Yes! Nature is quite extraordinary and diverse. We had a wonderful walk up on the hills last week, we saw Fly Orchids too.
A different kind of orchid. New to me. Nice photo, too.
Quite new to me too, I think this is the first time I have seen one in the wild as it were.
I think it looks both like a bee and very happy, with a large grin. 🙂
Lovely! I am mad on wild orchids and the bee orchid is very special. A lovely shot.
We were on an evening wildlife trust wildflower walk, across chalk meadows and hills, you would have really enjoyed it. We were also fortunate to see a Fly Orchid which was a first for me, they are a really interesting group of plants.
It does leave you with out words…It is just beautiful.
Thankyou Charlie for reading my post, Orchids are very special aren’t they.
That is incredibly cool – to state the obvious, it looks like a bee! Never seen or heard of one of these before.
They are cool, and part of a group of mimicry orchids, on the same trip we also saw Fly Orchids, which look like a group of flies on an Orchid, all to fool insects into pollinating the plant.
Is it just me or does this flower look like it’s smiling? At the top of the flower are two widely spaced dots that look like eyes above a big red smiley mouth. Pegsdon Hills must be a happy place. 🙂
I thought just the same as you, I see a happy face before I see the shape of a bee. Pegsdon Hills is a really happy place! 🙂
