[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Another of the great beauties of Sicily (orchid-wise speaking) the Anacamptis longicornu (Orchis longicornu). I found this one hard to photograph due to the large contrast on the flowers. This shot was made late in the afternoon, and hopefully does some justice to the deep purples on the flowers

Hello Jeroen,
A very fine Orchid you have found in Sicily. I like especially the very subtle colors of this shot.Always difficult to photograph this kind of flowers. (I never really succeed to do well)
Kind regards

Bonjour Jeroen,
Très belle publication avec cette bonne macro valorisant bien le sujet.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
