[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a flower only an orchid enthusiast can love. The flowers are very small ( just a few mm long) and green. The plant is about 10 cm tall and blends into the habitat (see WS). Although it is quite common in Europe, not too many people know it, and it was never shown on TN.

Only two flowers and a bud are in focus in this pic, due to the very small size compared to the DOF. A smaller aperture would have helped only marginally.
