[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Here is another wet Bee Orchid from last Sunday at Laconi, Sardinia, the Mirror Bee Orchid. It is quite common in Sardinia. The relatively large flower (for an Ophrys; the mirror-like labellum is over 10 mm long) is usually supported on a very short stem of no more than 10 cm.

Hello Ishi,
What a nice image and interesting too.....Excellent capture of a nice specie. The composition, the light and exposure are very good. Fantastic razor sharp details. Fascinating contrast against the green background.
