Holy Orchid

By mattberry    
The Holy Orchid Orchis sancta or Anacamptis sancta on the island of Rhodes, Greece. This is one of the best places to see this scarce species, being quite common - perhaps Rhodes is blessed Smile

Thanks for looking!

They're on Crete but rare Carol. But of course Crete has its own specialities and species not found on Rhodes. That is the beauty of islands, lots of endemic and regional variation Smile

I hope to venture to Crete for its Orchids next year, have a friend visiting this year in April, so will hear their stories and then make my own plans!
