The pyramidal orchid, Anacamptis pyramidalis, is a perennial herbaceous plant belonging to the Genus Anacamptis of the family Orchidaceae. Taken on a lovely warm Spring day earlier this year, on a super day out in the excellent company of Mike (Greyheron) The larger of the pair of orchids is hosting a tiny "guest" Smile

Many thanks for your great support of my last upload, with special thanks to Ju (JuBarney) and Adrian(tomcat) for their User Awards - very much appreciated Smile

The mix of the sharpness of the flower and softness in the grass works so very well
