Bee Orchid (Ophrys apifera) photographed yesterday after the rain.

This is the first flower I have seen this year and is nearly three weeks later than last year. Just goes to show what a cold spring we have had this year!

Everything's late especially down on the Levels, I'm just started seeing moth species normally on the wing in April, not early June??......The world going bonkers, good find here though I haven't seen one as yet.
