Ophrys sicula

By GeorgePlatis
Ophrys sicula belongs to Ophrys lutea group, where Ophrys is a Greek word which means eyebrow and lutea is a latin and it means yellow. This is a very delicate plant with a rather thin stem and the diameter of its lip is less than 10mm.
This is another fascinate orchid from Rhodes.

V.2 for me, George, a much sharper image. A beautiful little orchid, you certainly have some beauties across the water Smile Carol
