That's for sure Neil, captivating specie. Every year i walk in fields of speculum near Sigean-Leucate (Fr,Aude) and i now found them "common". But you're right when i make it discover to someone new to orchids it's the whaah effect.

You grow them beautifully but there must be spectacular to see them in the wild!

Some of the Ophreys are so similar I wonder if they are variations rather than separate species? Bee orchid is seen in various guises.
