Took this on saturday on our walk down to High Force, really pleased with this.

The Common Spotted-orchid (Dactylorhiza fuchsii) is a commonly occurring species of European orchid. It is widely variable in colour and height, ranging from 15 to 60 cm in height. The flower colour can vary from white to pale purple with purple spots. The lip has three lobes. Some colonies are highly perfumed, attractive to day-flying moths.

Flowers: JuneľAugust.
Leaves: narrow lanceolate, keeled, often dark-spotted.
Distribution: widespread, occurring from alkaline marshes to chalk downland. The most common orchid in Britain. After the Bee Orchid, it is the most successful orchid coloniser of waste land.

A very impressive capture of the wild orchid, I remember these well from my years living in the New Forest.

Only way I think this could be improved would be by losing grass seed head.
