[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
One of the prettiest ophtys with deep rich colors found on Sicily was the Ophrys lunulata. I enjoyed seeing them in quite a few places, but apperntly they only grow on Sicily and some of the nearby island, so for those of you who haven't been there yet these twins

Hello Jeroen,
You have seen quite a lot of Orchid-species in Catania. This one is very artistically presented with fine colors and a beautiful background. Well composed too. I have been in Catania in the past, but I didn't know that there was such an interesting vegetation.
Kind regards

Bonjour Jeroen,
Les sujets sont relativement bien valorisés malgré un manque d'opposition plus forte avec l'arrière plan.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Hi Jeroen

Superb capture of the two plants together.
It really is a beauty this one.
Only ever found a couple on our trip.
Great composition,colurs and sharpness.
