So beautiful Ray and you're right it is indeed a Wild Orchid, and it's a great close up capture with wonderful colour sits well with that background.

Such a pleasure to find growing in the wild, and you have captured this one beautifully, Ray: the presence of the buttercups, lurking in b/g just OOF, and the grass seed heads all add to the natural charm of the shot..

Great shot of this orchid, Ray - it looks like the Northern Marsh Orchid, Dactylorhiza Purpurella.
