Beautiful spotting, Tania! Well deserved SOTD.
Congratulations Tania, this striking orchid is our Spotting of the Day!"Can you see a face with tufts and ears? This striking orchid in the genus Ophrys (Ophrys attica) is our Spotting of the Day! Ophrys is a large group of orchids known as "bee orchids". They use sexual deception to attract pollinators: visual and tactile cues as well as pheromones attract male pollinators and get them to engage into pseudocopulation. Currently placed within the Ophrys umbilicata group, Ophrys attica's distribution extends from Southern Albania, through Greece and the Aegean to Anatolia. Ophrys attica has green sepals".Facebook:https://www.facebook.com/projectnoah/pho...Twitter:https://twitter.com/projectnoah/status/8...
