A change from the bugs and beasties, with a beautiful bee orchid that I spotted this week. These wonderful orchids are appearing everywhere now, barely noticeable in the long grass.
I learn about macro every day in ur pics
Morning Carol reminds me of a giraffe's head cracking shot though
Beautifully presented, Carol.
Cracking capture. Agree with 'bobsblues' comment.
I too immediately thought of a giraffe when I first saw this.
Super image - lovely colours.
Yep a 1 eyed giraffe with its tongue out.... Seriously good shots Carol and an interesting plant that I have only seen once in the UK.
A beautiful image of a beautiful "Nero Wolfe" flower.- One quite seldom sees orchids on these pages. - Well done , Carol! --- Jukka.
Morning Carol, nice image but where's the bug he he
2 super captures of Bee Orchid's Carol, in the field next to one of the power plants that I used to manage we had area's that we used to rope off as there were these orchids growing. A great looking plant
2 beautiful captures.
From the thumbnail it looks like a Giraffe...
Yup....my first thought was a giraffe...
Lucky you to have these growing wild
Two lovely captures Carol
Super images Carol

does to me as well Carol nice one
Uncanny resemblance to a giraffe.......interesting plant......never seen one before
Seems we all think alike. Thought it was Kathryns at first. Nature immating life. Excellent work yet again Carol.
Plants do have an uncanny resemblance to certain animals, but Giraffe orchid does not have quite the same ring to it as Bee orchid.
Well captured Carol.
Two lovely shots Carol.
Lovely detail, Carol. I'm in the giraffe camp as well.
Wild orchids never fail to amaze me - all this beauty growing wild
and brought up close for enjoyment in your lovely images.
Superb shots, Carol - I'm jealous again - ours here won't be out until late May/ early June!
I thought giraffe then hummingbird. Two lovely macros with great detail.
Not entirely away from the bugs as it is a bee orchid
Nonetheless, a super image.
You've certainly got us talking with this one Carol. I thought giraffe as well to start with, then when I looked at V2, I thought of a baby duckling lying on it's back flapping its wings and waiting for food!
2 great images though
Great shots lovely detail
Beautiful images Carol.
Very beautiful Carol You don't have to venture very far from where I live to find Marsh Orchids, which are quite small, and I'd imagine these are about the same size. Trouble is, you have to grovel about on your hands and knees to photograph them!!
Beautiful images Carol..Lin
A giraffe for me too. Beautiful light and colours in these images Carol.
Wonderful light and colours Carol.
Beautiful orchids Carol, can see where their name comes from....a great set
Gorgeous shots of a lovely flower.
They're so beautiful Carol - well captured.
beautiful orchid great shot Carol.
A superb flower Carol , you have captured it so well . I prefer version 1 as it gives a better idea of how big the flower is xx
V1 for me Carol - what a great shape - those buds look like ears.
Lovely little flower.
Little beauties, Carol.
Stunning photography, as always.
So real, I feel I could touch them...
Outstanding looking flower... Two fabulous images Carol!
A beautiful flower Carol, you've captured its colours and markings wonderfully well. I think Bobs Blues is having a giraffe, he's obviously partaken of some of Safari Simon's Madafu! lol
