Man orchid, Όρχις η ανθρωποφόρος

Orchis anthropophora

Description:

A small but impressive orchid, especially in the detail of the flowers that form a bunch of little people, each with a helmet on its head.

Habitat:

Found in rocky shrubbery and dry phrygana. The third photo also shows the Orchis quadripunctata which now blooms in large numbers in this type of site.
