This tiny fingernail sized orchid is difficult to photograph. There are tiny glass clear fibers that make the lower part look out of focus. It grows at the base of trees on the shaded side and always looks down and away from the light. I propped it back with a twig so the face could be seen. There are only six or seven near Lazo swamp, comox B.C. Tread carefully and keep Rover on the leash. Good luck!

Thanks for your quick support. There is another orchid 15 places ahead of mine. Ophrys Mammosa by Mattberry. It is a beauty! If anyone knows what this one is called,...feel free. TG
