Bumble Bee Orchid

Ophrys bombyliflora

Description:

Orchid with a slim stem up to 15 cm and a few small flowers with a lip size of about 1cm.

Habitat:

The specific population of about 20 plants was located in a semi-shady place free from high vegetation which is currently orgiastic.

Notes:

It is a cute member of the genus Ophrys that some say resembles a small animal and due to its size and brown colour of the flower is pretty difficult to be spotted.
