[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
As indicated by its name Ophrys provincialis is really localized in Provence.

It is quite robust with green sepals and petals, although petals are darker than sepals.

The basal field is reddish and the reddish or bluish mirror displays a white border which underlines it and contrasts with the lip brown tone. The pseudo-eyes are surrounded of white. The appendix is small and directed downwards.

Flowering period from April to May.

Hello Anita and Mike,
very natural picture of that wonderful Ophrys!

Sharpness and light are very good!


Nice one,

from the picture it looks a lot like sphegodes and araneola, i guess the robustness gice it away?
