Some more photos from the secret Tongue Orchid site:
On the left, a hybrid Green-winged x Loose-flowered Orchid (Anacamptis morio x A. laxiflora); on the right, a Loose-flowered Orchid.
Loose-flowered Orchid Anacamptis laxiflora (Fr. Orchis à fleurs lâches).
Two of five photographers all pointing at the same thing. They are not photographing the orchid, but a large bright green crab spider in the grass.
Black-veined White Aporia crataegi (Fr. Gazé) resting on Loose-flowered Orchid.
Loose-flowered Orchids in the grass, with members of the botany club.
A typical looking Tongue Orchid Serapias lingua (Fr. Sérapias à languette).
A Tongue Orchid with a yellow labellum (the bottom petal or the 'tongue'). The lack of red pigment is a mutation.
Marc has asked me if I will return to the site in the late summer/early autumn to survey the Autumn Lady's Tresses Spiranthes spiralis, and I will be very pleased to do so.
