Southern Marsh Orchid

Southern Marsh Orchid

Originally uploaded by tansy_whitebytts

I’ve had a happy afternoon photographing orchids. Both Southern Marsh and Heath Spotted.

They really are a beautiful flower. We are very lucky to have them fairly  near us. The efforts of the local conservation group have really helped them over recent years and now we get masses flowering each year.

The Heath Spotted orchids are much paler and smaller. Their stems not so tall. To see both go to my flickr site by clicking on More Photos under those currently shown in my Photo Gallery.
