Thank you Tukup for your kind words and the opportunity to talk a little more about an unusual icon that I don't think I 'll see again in my life.
For me too, such a large population of orchids was an amazing sight although in the open spaces of Athens Airport where this spotting is, 20 taxa of wild orchids have been found (rare or Greek endemics included).
Some species form large populations but in this case, such numbers from the largest and most robust Mediterranean orchid, offers for sure an orgiastic spectacle!

Thank you very much for the nomination!
Although Ophrys bombyliflora is not an endangered species, the very small size of both, plant and the flower, as well as the brown color, make it very indistinguishable and therefore pretty rare.
Thus, last year's finding which was a new place for Attica, had a special significance.
