King Ferdinand's Orchid Ophrys regis-ferdinandii taken today on the island of Rhodes, Greece. This uncommon species is found on just a handful of eastern Aegean islands and limited parts of Turkey.
It is also known as Earwig Orchid due to its insect like appearance.
Lovely shot, Matt - this is a new one on me!
Thats a new one for me Matt, can understand the Earwig comparison.
A lovely image Matt and pin sharp...John
How fascinating, thought from far it was a pollinator landing in the flower!
A rarity no doubt, first time I've seen one Matt !!
Beautifulful flower and beautifully captured, Matt......
Not seen one of these, Matt, an extraordinary orchid, and so much like a earwig, too Carol
Thanks for your comments everyone If ever an Orchid species was deemed to be cool, this would be one of them I think!
Great find Matt and superbly captured as always.
Excellent capture !
