Many thanks to Netta and Kate for the UAs.
Hope I'm not boring you tooo much, this is just a quick grab shot taken after dinner.. Could not resit the urge to rush up to the plateau after making dinner, it was late and drizzling but they seem to shine even in the dark Smile
I'd love to tell you what it is but I don't know Sad
THANK YOU Mike, yes you are right, I found the web site of a Dutch visitor to our area, he confirms it to be Anacamptis morio! And now I can identify them all Smile

V2 is a crop of the first picture, it's only there for the detail.

One would never know you shot this under less than perfect lighting conditions.
AND -- your background looks great as well.
