Orchis purpurea Lady Orchid

Observation - Orchis purpurea Lady Orchid. Description: The numbers of this species of orchid at the reserve are by far the lowest in the 25 years i have been visiting. Possibly this is a result of the drought affecting the fungus. On the other hand there are still quite a lot of fly orchids there.
